KDE System Notifications

When installing Mandrake 10.1 the system was unable to find my old sound card. However, once the system was up and running I went into a shell and ran 'alsaconf' which did find it and I've subsequently been able to play CDs quite sucesfully. However, when configuring KDE system notifications and activating 'Play a Sound' I hear nothing, and indeed no notifications are ever heard! What's wrong & how can I activate them?

Thanks for pointing me to the two threads. I followed the first one, found the file in question (in my home directory) and made the suggested changes and it works beautifully! Let's hope they fix this bug in a new version of KDE. I'll use the search facility in future before posting a new thread.
