which card is it from the list here?
is the driver for it loaded? ie, post the output of 'lsmod' here.
did you run 'alsaconfig'?

what files do you have on a cd?
as root, type 'modprobe snd-emu10k1' then run 'alsaconfig' then try testing your sound. if it works then run 'alsactl store' to save the settings.

did you run the commands as root?
open a terminal, type 'su', then your root password, then the modprobe and alsa commands in my previous post.

when your typing the commands in your terminal and you get the output of 'command not found', can you copy and paste all of that and post it here? thanks
also can you post the output of 'lsmod' and 'lspci', run as root

you should not get that. does the prompt have a '#' in it? try specifying the full path, such as '/sbin/modprobe snd-emu10k1'
also if you cant copy and paste, try redirecting the output of the command to a file and posting the contents of the file here. something like 'lsmod > lsmodOutput.txt' will work
