Unhappy Interesting sound problem...

It appears as though the only sound related thing working on my fresh Debian Sarge installation is the KDE sound daemon. Everything else, alsa included, will not work. I'm using a built in i810 sound card, and it seems to be detected (KDE sound daemon got it), but again it doesn't seem to be functioning. Any pointers?

In additional detail

If you have used adavance linux sound architecture
to be root first !

#> alsamixer
#> you will see the sound is mutted,unmut it by press m or M (I'm not sure)
#> use your arrow key to in/decrease sound in any channel
#> ESC
#> alsactl store (for the next time this value will be remain)

But At All It work in Slackware. I'm not sure in Debian System.
