Audio driver help

I have recently installed Ubuntu Hardy Heron onto a Sony Viao VA1 and i'm really pleased apart from the fact that I cannot get the sound card to work (Sigmatel). I would appriciate any help in getting the appropriate driver installed. I'm totally new to Linux and finding it difficult to install software.

Sigmatel what ? STAC92XX ? the output of lspci would be helpful.
