Question I can hear music from a CD, but nothing else....

First off..Hello!! I am new to linux and am using Mandrake 8.0. Ever since installation I have no sound, except when I play a music CD. I can't hear any mp3s or wav files or anything.

I have tried to configure my Soundblater 16 ISA in harddrake, but get the following error

"modprobe: can't locate module isa-pnp"

So I try sndconfig....It finds my sound card, I can't hear the first sample except for, "he........" . then it cuts off. However, I can hear the next midi sample just fine.

I have tried to change resources numerous times and have read all the howtos to the best of my ability. I am just stuck. Can anyone lend me a hand

Look at your soundmixer

Don't know if you are using a gui or not. I had somewhat the same problem. I use the KDE Gui. Here's what I did: KDE Start Application>Multimedia>Soundmixer. Make sure your sound is turned on.
