No sound in Mandrake v9.1 - Soundcard Detected


I have now installed "Linux Mandrake v9.1", but I have no sound on my system. The soundcard is fully detected and "sound" is 'on' in the Mandrake Controlcenter?! I am pretty new to this, so I have searched in the forums, and I found out that it woud be a good idea to do a "lspci -v" in console, so I did. Here is what I got from it:

0:02.7 Multimedia audio controller: Silicon Integrated Systems [SiS] SiS7012 PCI Audio Accelerator (rev a0)
Subsystem: FIRST INTERNATIONAL Computer Inc: Unknown device 2440
Flags: bus master, medium devsel, latency 173, IRQ 5
I/O ports at 1c00 [size=256]
I/O ports at 1800 [size=128]
Capabilities: [48] Power Management version 2

I should work, but when I play music etc. then there's still no sound?

have you tried turning up the volume? Mandrake mutes everything by default. Open Aumix (KDE menu->multimedia->sound->aumix) and turn up everything that's there.
