No Sound - Mandrake 9.0

This is my first experience with Linux. Mandrake 9.0 - KDE

There is no sound. Nothing. No boot up sound. No CD sound. Nada.

Checked the BIOS - sound is on.
Checked all the volume controls I could find. All are up.
Checked the mobo jumpers.
Checked the Control Center.

Mobo is ECS K7VTA3.

have a look in the KDE menu for the Sound System
