Only hear Sound in headphones

I only hear the sound from my Soundblaster Live 5.1 Audigy in the headphones, no sound at line out. I have already checked the volume in alsamixer. Somebody who knows how to fix this?

And one more question. How do I tell KsCD to read the CD digital, not analog as it seems that it does know?

make sure its unmuted, and also see if the line out can actually play sound (for some reason i see cards with line out only playing at certain times.. like it plays game sounds, but no music)

It is not muted, and when I wrote line out I mean the ordinary output to my speakers (working fine with windows XP and even in Knoppix)
But in slack 10 the sound seems to be played only to the headphones output. =(
