Unhappy Having problems on getting my speakers to work on my macintosh

I am having issues on playing music in Linux (Ubuntu 10.10). I installed windows and linux on my macintosh computer. windows and linux are not on virtual machines and they are directly installed on my hard drive and have their own disk partitions. When i am on linux, the speakers on my mac does not work with linux. I suspect that the sound driver may not be compatible, but i am not sure. When I stuck in the bootcamp cd into windows the disk took out windows driver called "realtek audio" and replace it with sigmatel audio and/or cirrus audio.
Also i was wondering if their was some cd like bootcamp for linux to make sure all the proper drivers are installed so then it works on my macintosh?

So any help would be awesome!

Why are you posting the same question twice in a half hour?
