Unhappy Can't Install linux-restricted-modules

I'm using the following guide because I have no sound in Ubuntu 11.10 x64:

My sound card is not being detected, so I need to download linux-restricted-modules for my kernel (3.0.0-15). I'm getting the error that the package cannot be found. I have selected the "Restricted" source in the Synaptic Package Manager. I have tried updating and upgrading the system, but I have the newest version of everything. I did a package search to make sure I'm typing it correctly, and nothing whatsoever came up.

You are correct, in 11.10 there is no such package.

Try these:

ubuntu-restricted-addons - Commonly used restricted packages for Ubuntu
ubuntu-restricted-extras - Commonly used restricted packages for Ubuntu

Thanks, I downloaded those, but something is still wrong because I'm still not seeing any drivers available.
