Arrow Sound problem, found a solution but don't know how to set it up


I installed Kubuntu and got alot good to go but the sound isn't working. I found a post on my mobo manf. forum to fix the problem but being a linux newb its hard to understand. Here is the link to my solution:

https://help.ubuntu.com/community/HdaIntelSoundHowto

I got up to Install the required tools and kernelheaders and type in term.
sudo aptitude install build-essential libncurses-dev gettext linux-headers-`uname -r`
Besides dl the drivers from Alsa I'm stuck and here is what I need help on.

*Install driver kernals, think I did with the above command but not sure
*I dl the drivers but to desktop and not the directory (eg. ~/downloads)
cause I don't know where that is.
*Setup installation directories (and other steps below)
With those command lines do I type a line at a time or do I copy and
paste the whole thing for each installation?

I haven't tried any of the other steps gonna try this one first and if it doesn't work I will try the second and post here if I need help.

Here is the original post I got the info from just in case:

Again thanks in advance

This is killing me need some help
I don't understand the directories in linux yet. Where is the downloads directory if there isn't one where do I make it?

I get up to the (cd /usr/src/alsa)

I don't understand what directories is usr and src? is it home and spencer? (Spencer is my name and name of PC)

in the instructions to I have to use the (sudo cp ~/downloads/alsa*) command since its a just a copy command. Is the * meaning I have do each of the drivers with this command.
