Does running "alsaconfig" help you at all? Does it even detect a sound card in your machine?

For that matter, do you know what sound hardware your computer has? Running "lspci" should get you on the right track there.

Finally, I am assuming you have made sure that the mixer isn't just muted?

what are the privileges set for /dev/dsp or /dev/sound/dsp ? Maybe try adding your user to group root.

I am also a noob, so this answer could easily be wrong However, I have sound working with an AC97 card (actually integrated on the mb).

Run lspci as root - it should show your AC97 to be present

Run alsaconfig as root - it should find your soundcard

Run alsamixer as normal user - the sound may be muted - if so unmute it!

There are those who say run alsactl store as root but I never found it made any difference ....

Make sure you have the sound system enabled in Control Panel/Sound & Multimedia/Sound System

If you're trying to use Amarok make sure it is using the xine engine

Good luck!
