If you plug your speakers into the wrong jack, you will damage your motherboard.

As Obscure posted, you must configure the drivers from ALSA. This is the link for the
Intel i810 soundchip which you have on your motherboard. Download the first 3 files -
Driver, Library, and Utilities from the ALSA homepage and then follow the instructions
for Intel i820 as outlined here.

After doing that, in a console as a regular user issue ->
$ alsamixer
and unmute all the channels with the M key of your keyboard, and turn up your levels
with the up arrow key. Then esc to exit, and type su to login as super user, and issue ->
# alsactl store
to save your settings permanently. Then logout from su by typing exit and become a
normal user again.

I can't remember how to restart your sound server, but if you type Ctrl+Alt+Backspace
you will kill the x-server, then you can type startx to restart it. At this point you should
have sound. If not, post back.
