Help configuring sound in SUSE 10.0

I've seen/read a million threads on how to configure sound in SUSE 10.0, but I can't seem to get anything to work. I have a VT82C686 AC97 sound card. No matter how I try to set things up, I can even hear system sounds (let alone sounds from an audio cd).

Does anyone have any suggestions or links to get me started?

Hi cartwright

In suse 10.0 you have yast to setting up things, so try the following:

Open a terminal (konsole?), type 'su -' press Enter key. You will ask for your root password but you will nothing see as you type it in! press enter key and you should be working as root, now.

Type 'yast' within the terminal; in yast chose 'Hardware'->'Sound'->'Edit'.

Check your Sound card is recognized correctly, if it is (and only than!) chose 'Other'->'Start Sequencer', confirm starting the sequencer.
Chose 'Other'->'Volume' and check volum channels; try the 'Test' button

Sound shoud work now

Make your linux
