Exclamation Pico Problems

Well, hi I recently installed Linux (about 2 weeks ago) and I havent been able to get my sound to work. I went to all the sites and got all the info I though I need untill I got really confused, with this:

"For a little help in the layout of this file, the man page is an excellent guide to keep at hand for this. Each device will have a section that starts with about 4 lines that gives information on what the device is:

# Card 1: (serial identifier 6d ff ff ff ff f0 00 8c 0e)
# Vendor Id CTL00f0, No Serial Number (-1), checksum 0x6D.
# Version 1.0, Vendor version 1.0
# ANSI string -->Creative ViBRA16X PnP<--

Look for the section containing the sound card device. The lines in this section that you need to pay attention to are the lines within parentheses. These are the lines that need to be adjusted for your card's resources.

You make adjustments by commenting or uncommenting the beginning of the line, indicating that you want to use the resource specified on that line. (When you uncomment, you're making that line visible for use in the file; when you comment, it's invisible, for all intents and purposes.) Uncommenting is performed by removing the hash mark (#); to comment, just replace the hash mark. Once you have finished making these changes, look for the line towards the end of the file that says:

# (ACT Y)

Remove the "#," save the changes, and exit from Pico. "

Can anyone tell me what the heck this means ???

Pico is just a text editor (that comes with the Pine email tool), so they are just telling you to load the file (you didn't give the name of the file its referrng to!! Might be useful!) into a text editor, remove the # from the line that reflects your sound card, then save the file. If you post your distro, and your sound card details, and what you've done so far I'm sure we can get to working...
