Sound problem in Slackware 10.1


Hello

After making a fresh install with Slackware 10.1 and starting the system I've encountered the following message:
Code:
Sound server informational message:
Error while initializing the sound driver:
device /dev/dsp can't be opened (No such device)
The sound server will continue, using the null output device.
At the moment I'm using Slackware 10.1 and my sound card is SB Live! 5.1. I have a onboard sound card, but it's disabled from the Bios.
Could you please help me with suggestions - How to enable my sound?
Thank you in advance.

Greetings,
