ASUS A7N8X Delux in Slackware 9.1

I just installed Slackware 9.1 on my Asus A7N8X computer. Everything worked fine out of the box except for my sound. I've read other posts saying that they had no problems with the on board sound card (NVIDIA Soundstorm), so I'm really confused as to what the problem is....
I'm not great with hardware stuff. Here's my lsmod (I've been told its useful):

So I've been playing around with my problem, and I got half way there...
I get audio while logged in as su, but I get that I dont have the right permissions as a normal user. I'm not sure what to do to fix this. Can I just chmod or chown the device? This sounds a bit dangerous... In any case please help. Thanx.
