config sound without sndconfig

I've search through the column about setting soundcard and most of the answer involve with command....


eventually, my mandrake 9.1 dose not have this command. When I execute it, it said...

bash : sndconfig : command not found.

So how can I set my sound card. My sound card is Sis7012. I'm sure that it's working because I used to make it work once (set it in Xwindow) but it's just one. After I restart it, only silence is heard. I always config in Aumix but it's not save. Everytime I change to volumn up to 100 after I release my mouse it goes back to 50. Everytime I uncheck the mute all option, it always check on mute all option again after I restart this application. Everytime I save, it doesn't do a thing.

In Mandrake control center when I set driver for sound card sometime there is one option which is

i810_audio(Intel 810 audio support)

but sometime there are 3 options.....

Ali554 (ALI 5545 audio support)
i810_audio(Intel 810 audio support)

I don't know which is correct one since sometime there is only 1 option
and when I select "config module" the application freeze. So I might not be able to
complete configuration.

Moreover, in control centrol (another than mandrake control center)
when I start aRts soundserver, next time I enter Xwindow it said I have to be root to run this. But when I enter xwindow as root, it said something like cpu overload can't start sound server??....
and in Information-->sound in the same control center sometime there is info about my card but sometime there is nothing??
Please advice me. I'm really a newbie who doesn't know anything.
