Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

alsaconf - configuration tool for the Advanced Linux Sound Architecture
This manual page documents briefly the alsaconf command.
Alsaconf is a simple shell script which tries to detect the sound cards on
your system and writes a suitable configuration file for ALSA. It will try to
guess what GNU/Linux distribution you're running, and will act accordingly to
the standards of that distribution, if specific support is available.
Alsaconf will write a module-init-tools (or modutils) snippet which can be
then used by module-init-tools (or modutils) to load the correct parameters
for your sound card.
Try 'alsaconf' from the cli as root. Then configure alsamixer settings, then do a 'alsactl store'. See what happens.
I was using alsaconf to configure the drivers. I also saved the settings useing alsactl store. So I don't think its that but I try again.
When setting it up I am given three options.
hda-intel - intel corporation 82801G (ICH7 Family) High Definition Audio
hda-intel - ATI technologies Inc HD48x0 audio
legacy - Probe leacy ISA (non-PnP) chips
It looks like what may be going on here is that you have two soundcards in your system and index=0 if being taken over by the secondary soundcard. You can fix this by editing your /etc/modprobe.d/sound.conf file settings to make your desired sound card the "first" soundcard alsa finds. For instance I have a asus xonar and usb webcam with microphone, so to set my xonar as soundcard 0 i edit like so...
alias snd-card-0 snd-virtuoso
alias sound-slot-0 snd-virtuoso
options snd-virtuoso index=0
alias snd-card-1 snd-usb-audio
alias sound-slot-1 snd-usb-audio
options snd-usb-audio index=1
I logged into root and that seemed to fix the problem. Thanks from every one who helped. When I get home I'll fix the groups that user is part of. I was so convinced that it was software error that I didn't even think about user error.
One quick questions. I did a quick Google search and turned up nothing on this so I'm asking here. Is it possible to change the user groups a user is in with out having to delete the account and recreating it.
onebuck gave you better directions for your problem, but a direct answer for your question is yes, you can change the groups the user is part of without removing the user. In terminal, as root, you can use gpasswd or usermod (though the last one is not recommended).
