So sound on Toshiba Satellite A205-S4557

I've recently installed the openSUSE 10.3, but eventually no sound can be played!
I've tried to install the alsa driver but the KMIX can't detect it.

Would you please help me to do this task. Please list all the steps i should take from the beginning I'm new to linux

I can't say for sure, but I believe that when I first installed Slack 12 on my Toshiba (Satellite A135) I had to load the driver for the sound card as follows for the sound to even work.

modprobe snd-hda-intel model=3stack

If you Google a bit, there are several other options for model= , that others found worked with their specific hardware, but that was the one that worked for me.
