No Audio on startup


My problem is that I get a 'no /dev/dsp' message on start up and that sound will run on 'null' device.

After reading the FAQ on how to post in here:

1. - No such file or Directory.

2. - 2.6.8.1-12mdk / Mandrake 10.1

3. - This is not a laptop.

4. - What?

5. - If you cant tell by now, I am a newb at Linux. What I get here is a very long list of things I don't understand.

6. - Tried Google and found this forum.

7. - Not USB.

By the way, in my system config:
