If the link I posted describes your mobo's sound chipset and you want to use in Linux, you will.

You could always stick in something like a SBLive! or Turtle Beach Santa Cruz (I love it, but to get everything working I had to install the ALSA CVS driver) and get much better sound.

That depends upon the kernel version you need for support. I don't think mandrake has a package built for the one you need, do they? If not, download the one suggested and learn how to compile your kernel.

13 attempts for my first working kernel. I felt like I was back in Windows with all the re-boots.

You sit at the computer and can see the results of commands and stuff that you do.

I can't see all that stuff from way over here, so you will have to be the right person to ask.

You have to know your hardware to compile the kernel correctly (and speed things up as a result).
