Lost half of my sound in Mandrake 9.1

Hello, i have Mandrake 9.1 and a Sound Blaster PCI 128.

Everything was working fine until the day i've installed wineX 3.1.

I've installed it. But to make halfe life to work i chmoded 777 nvidia0 and nvidiactl. then i played Counterstrike. It was working very well.

Then i dont know why, but to shutdown my computer i loged out, then i connect me back in failsafe. I typed "shutdown". It didnt worked so i pass in root. Then i typed "halt".

After that. When i wanted to boot back on linux, the nvidia0 et nvidiactl had desapeared. I had to install a new time the nvidia driver (and this time i just chmod it 555). Then video was working again, but the sound had desapeared two.

The sound in "Tux Racer" and in the test sound button of the KDE configuration panel too. In Realplayer it works. But, it doesnt works at the KDE startup nor in half life(still with wineX) .

I checked the sound configuration in draksound. But nothing change.

If i select a random driver for my soundcard, the sound initialisation fails (of course). Then i change it in draksound. I log out and log back and the sound works. But if i reboot. The sound desapears again.

I can't understand anything nor the nvidia nor the sound desapearence.

Anyone can help me?

in fact, when i booted and i discovered that the nvidia drivers were no longer installed, the boot made file verification and make me log as root to repair....

so perhaps sound drivers deseapered in the reparation. I would want to install them back. But i dont know and i cant find the package.(for mandrake 9.1)
