Unhappy Soundblaster driver

I am a brand newbie to linux. How do you load a driver? For example I have a sound-blaster live 5.1 card in the system, Linux sees it, but will not play any sounds. My win98 on the same machine plays sound fine. I don't have a clue how to load the driver. Can anyone help?
