Exclamation intel onboard sound and 9.2 mandrake

I have mandrake 9.2 kernel: 2.4.22-10mdk running under VMWARE for windows 2000. I am linux rookie.
I cannot get my sound card detected. I have an intel board with integrated audio, it is ac'97 card. I run sndconfig and after it doesnt find it i choose the intel one or a Via card i get an error on the test sound section. This is error:
... error running modprobe...:
o.gz: init_module: No such device
modprobe: insmod
o.gz failed
modprobe: insmod sound-slot-0 failed

I tried /sbin/lspci but get nothing( as root).
What info would be helpful?

I have the same problem, also using Mandrake and AC97. I think it is caused by the sound card and BIOS expecting PNP from the operating system. If you can turn of PNP in BIOS this may work. Unfortunately I can't do this, as my laptop has very limited BIOS settings that don't offer any such options. %&*$! I would be interested to see if turning off plug and play works.

My problem turned out to be with Vmware, so i get sound now, but vmware is limited it soud capabilites with directx and that stuff. Iwasnt able to turn PnP off either in my bios so dont know if that would have worked. Peace
