Open up a terminal and type:

su -
password: <enter your root password>

modprobe sb <I believe it's sb for soundblaster 16--soundblaster live uses emu10k1>
insmod <correct module name here--if "sb" put sb>

cd /etc

Open /etc/modules.conf and input your alias:

alias sound-slot-0 sb

This should get your sound card working properly. Additionally, when you launch X do you get any errors regarding /dev/dsp? If so, in your terminal you need to grant permission to run it:

chmod 660 /dev/dsp

Hope this helps.
