Dude, to check if your sound card is working and to setup the volume you have to open:

-> Control Centre -> YaST Administrator Settings (you may need root password)
-> Hardware -> Sound -> Sound Configuration -> Other -> Volume.

p.s. forgot to mention - all this is true if you are using Gnome as your graphical interface; if you're using KDE or any other then it'd most likely be different.
