Sound for slack

I've been reading lots of little pages in the forum for sound, but i haven't seemed to accomplish this yet... sound. I tried all the commands they said lsmod, modprobe, commands like that said "COMMAND NOT FOUND" So i decided to post a thread up onto the forum about this, Does anyone know where i can install my sound driver? as in what directory the sound is located that's pretty much all i need; oh and do i need to compile it? that's all

thanks :]

You need to tell us what soundcard you have!

Also, say exactly what commands you have tried, and exactly what error messages they gave.

Give us what soundcard you have will make it much easier. Have you tried browsing thru the Slackware forum ? Its been asked and answered numerous times on how to get sound working in Slackware.
