Sound on Toshiba Laptop and Mandriva

Hi all,

I've just installed Mandriva on my laptop and am a complete newb as far as linux goes, i am working my way through the linux for dummies book and another couple of info docs. When I installed Mandriva it seemed to go ok but the sound didn't work despite the sound card being detected. After searching a few sites I found someone with a similar problem on this forum although the hardware was different, I decided to give the solution a go which was :

in a terminal
sudo kwrite /etc/modules

when the document opens, add snd-sbawe to it
save it, close it and reboot

This got my sound working but in any of the games there is just a constant clicking type sound instead of game sounds? perhaps this is because the hardware is different?? If so do I need to replace the "snd-sbawe" with something else??

The detected card is -

Vendor: ‎ATI
Description: ‎IXP150/200 AC'97 Audio Controller
Bus: ‎PCI
Bus PCI #: ‎0
PCI device #: ‎20
PCI function #: ‎5
Vendor ID: ‎4098
Device ID: ‎17217
Sub vendor ID: ‎4473
Sub device ID: ‎65296
Module: ‎snd-atiixp
