Post Mandrake 10.1 sound and video problem

I'm running a mandrake 10.1 system and a abit nf7-s motherboard. The chipset is nforce and I'm using on-board audio. I updated the chipset driver and I wasn't able to get sound. I checked harddrake and found that the on-board sound processing unit didn't have a module loaded for it. I modprobe nvaudio and found that it didn't exist and then I loaded nvsound and it loaded but now I have to load it everytime. I kind of forgot where I have to add a string to get it to boot when the system loads.

My video card is a radeon 9800 pro then I went and updated the drivers and now it won't run any movie file. When I go to load the movie I get a "All video drivers failed" error message. I lsmod and it showed no module for my video card. I used the executable file downloaded from and now it loads no module and I can't find the doc for it......

it was a long time the last time I used linux. I will post any information you need from files.

thank you

Ok, I found my problem. What i had to do was reinstall mandrake. I reinstalled it and installed the drivers from ati site and everything is good with video card but there is no hardware acceleration. As far as the movie problem goes I read that up that I have to kill the process of artsd and knotify then load the program I wish to run... after that things are peachy.

only part of the answer

to find your docs

type in a console as root (type su to become root)
updatedb (then wait)
exit (type exit)
locate ati
if this is too many files try
locate ati | grep -i doc

You may want to update your LQ profile if you now use mandrake

When i started with mandy, could never remember the name of the
command kmix and aumix

to automatically load at boot maybe /etc/modprobe.conf
(or one of these /etc/ something called .preload)
Cannot tell you which one exactly, but that is the idea
