I went to Alsa homepage and could not find support for your chipset:

still, you most likely have alsa installed (else, install it ). Try typing "alsaconfig" to see if you can set up your sound card. If your card is not listed, but is 100% compatible with a SoundBlaster, there might still be hope for you by tweaking with alsaconfig.

Good luck!
