Open a root terminal and type "lspci -v" (minus quotes). Post back what it says about the audio chipset - a quick Google search seems to suggest that your board uses the VIA vt82c686, which is supported by ALSA.

Not a bad little board for a freebie, by the way. Should make a nice Linux box once everything's sorted.
