audio on laptop using slack


I am having problems getting my audio to work. I have a generic laptop from pricewatch, slackware 9.0 (but most packages upgraded), kernel version is 2.6.1.

When I log into windows.. the audio card shows as a legacy... so I am stumped on what I need to do to get the audio to work in slack... any help would be appreciated.
