sound/noise ???

Afternoon all,

After asking various questions to try and get my onboard AC97 working, with no luck,

I have just thrown 50 quid at PCWORLD for a SoundBlaster Live 5.1 digital. What do I need to do now to get it to make some noise ??

I have tried dmesg and it seems to be detected, if I look in the control centre, It shows up on the hardware list and says something about module snd-emu10k1.

What should I do/check next please?

[root@localhost bigjohn]# /sbin/modprobe emu10k1
/lib/modules/2.4.19-16mdk/kernel/drivers/sound/emu10k1/emu10k1.o.gz: init_module: No such device
Hint: insmod errors can be caused by incorrect module parameters, including invalid IO or IRQ parameters.
You may find more information in syslog or the output from dmesg
modprobe: insmod /lib/modules/2.4.19-16mdk/kernel/drivers/sound/emu10k1/emu10k1.o.gz failed
modprobe: insmod emu10k1 failed

The above is what I got from the modprobe - so I am presuming that the emu10k1 module isn't loaded so I have got a copy of it from sourceforge and it's sitting in my home directory.

It's called emu10k1-v0.18-2.tar.gz, so how and where should it be unzipped please?
