Sound Problem under Knoppix with SBLive

I've decided to give gnu/linux another try and play with knoppix some to get the feel. Last time I played with gnu/linux I was turned away because it was way to difficult to get my integrated sound card working. Now I've got a Sound Blaster Live! 5.1 that works fine under Windows XP, and when I boot Knoppix it seems to detect it (loads the emu10k1 driver). Upon loading XMMS and other sound programs I discovered that although the songs were playing, I couldn't hear them. I then proceeded to play with Kmix where everything seemed to be set properly, and when I set the volume to max and turned my speakers up, if I muted the volume I could hear a faint click.

Any ideas how I can get sound working?

Is it possible to restart kde while running knoppix? From what I understand knoppix shutdown once kde is closed.

lsmod returned the following:
emu10k1       61064  1
sound         55276  0 [emu10k1]
i810_audio    25048  1
ac97_codec    11916  0 [emu10k1 i810_audio]
soundcore     3428   9 [emu10k1 sound i810_audio]
