Did a quick google on the sound chip.
Looks like the naming of the channels is screwed in alsa. Double click the speaker symbol (probably on the bottom right) - go to preferences and enable everything that moves, then play a file with an audio player and try to figure out which channels work.
If there is no sound device listed in the mixer thingy, then you really have a driver problem.
I don't know about suse. In ubuntu in the sound configuration you can specify which channels should be used as master mixer - just mark them (ctrl-click) and exit once you found which one the actual master control is.
Also make sure that you have pcm turned up.

It is very rare that you need to install a driver for a soundcard. oss and alsa support a very broad spectrum, but there apparently is a linux driver.
I downloaded the one from the realtek site: LinuxPkg_5.04.tar.bz2
Suse should extract it with right-click - extract.
(tar -xfz from the command line.)
There's an install script in there, so it should be just:

chmod +x install
./install

from the command line in the folder you extracted...
or right-click - make executable
double-click
from within the file manager. Command line would be better though, as it will show you errors if they occur.
make sure to read the README file. In the linux world those are occasionally there for a reason.

so... what did you do?
Is there a sound card listed in the mixer applet?
Did you install the driver?
