Sound Card config on Drake 9.1

Hey! I installed Linux 2 days ago, and got GNOME working and have everything I need EXCEPT Sound. I'm not sure how to config it, and I know I shouldn't have my hand held , but I've looked for 2 hours and still can't do it. Please help me.

Thank you,

you have to put in more info about things, it doesn't help us out to see, "help, my sound doesn't work" when we dont' know what card you have.

Open the Mandrake Control Centre, go into Hardware and Hardware List. That will list all your hardware....
