linux sound help

ok, i have spent many hours on about my home theater system. Well after many hours, i finally bought an audigy 2 zs platinum, and connected my home theater system via optical spdif ( all this in windows ) it was great. Now that i have switched to linux slackware 10, i dont know how to make it work. I have configured alsaconf. i have tried plugging the left and right cables in a y plug to the normal speaker jack on the sound card. i cant get any sound.

Help would be appreciated.
