knoppix 3.8.1 soundcard detected, but mixer cannot be found

hi, i've just upgraded to knoppix 3.8.1, and the only problem has been the sound (which seems to be a common problem). when i boot, knoppix recognizes my intel 82801 (or whatever the number is) sigmatel ac97 soundcard without any cheatcode, but when the desktop shows up, kmix can't find the mixer. so i try to run soundcardconfig and it tells me im not running the appropriate kernel - it says it cant find soundcard.o or something. any ideas? ive used alsa-intel8x0, alsa=intel8x0, emul10k, alsa, and nothing seems to work.
thank you in advance

Try alsaconfig.
Some chipsets needs fresh alsa drivers compiled from sources.
