Did you unhash out your sound card from rc.modules? Thats the first step.

rc.modules is at /etc/rc.d/rc.modules. Go there with a text editer (I prefer to use Midnight Commander, type "mc" at the command prompt) and make sure that the driver for your card doesnt have a "#" in front of it. If it does log in as root and erase the #. Then you will want to make the card useable to users other then root. The easiest way is to log in as root and just let every user have access to it, do "chmod 666 /dev/dsp".

I hope this helps.
