Ubuntu Live CD -- no sound?

Just wondering if it's normal for the Live CD of Ubuntu 10.04 to not have sound. I'm a bit worried about installing the software if I won't have sound. I've checked the volume and mutes and so on and everything looks like I should have sound. And the system has sound in Windoze and Fedora.

Any suggestions on how to fix this? I see a lot of things about fixing it in the genuine install but the paths in the Live CD are totally different and I'm not sure what to do.

Thank for any help with this!

What sound chip are you using? What applications are you using to test sound?
