Yamaha YMF 724 problem

I am a newbie.
I remember using mandrake 8.2 and the sound worked right away,
but now for some reason I installed Mandrake 10 and I cant get a sound out
of the card.

It seems like it has detected it during the installation because in the
control center > hardware I can see it in the list of detected hardware as
an YMF -724. So it must be there.... but on the KMIX applet next to the time
I can see a speaker with a red X on it, but mute is NOT selected.
When I click on it with the left mouse button I get a small window that
tells me to select current mixer from a drop down box. But there is no
mixer in there to select!

What must I do? Please if you know discribe the solution as best as you can
because I am new to linux.

I found this post that seems to have the solution.... but I have no idea what to do!
Can anyone help me out?

lspcidrake -v
fgrep sound-slot /etc/modules.conf
lsmod|fgrep snd
fuser -v /dev/dsp
aumix -q

Thanks in advance!

have you tried opening a terminal and running alsamixer to see if anything is muted there? have a look here

there are several listings for the card, check/read, each. often there are tips and tricks on the card page for getting the card going, as well as getting the most from the card.
good luck.
