configuring sound and printer

Hi i am pretty new to Linux... I have recently installed gentoo on my system, and then KDE. Now everything works fine. But there are two problems I have, I am not sure how to configure the sound on my system, no sound comes out at all.
Also I cannot find my printer on my system aswell.

Can anyone help me here?

the gentoo forums are excellent ( and you are brave to try out Gentoo first.

Anyhow, trying running this as root in a console:


It will go through some steps to set up your sound card.

For the printer hit up the printer option under the control center in KDE.
