How and what programs do I associate with Skype to have sound

I recently installed Skype into my Mandrake partition. I found it relatively difficult to speak to anyone without it.
Thank you for looking and thanks again if you can help.

Hello rafty114,

Can you edit your post to complete what you were saying and I will try and respond. Most skype problems are just related to speakers/mics in wrong sockets. Do a google for skype echo service, add this to your buddy list and use it to test instead of annoying your friends!
