It usually means it' wrong driver. Try with others.

Mandrake 7.2? What kind of soundcard do you have? Is it pci or ISA? The difference is that the interface to the motherboard is either very long (and usually black) or short (and usually white). ISA cards aren't as easy to set up, and aren't even found on newer motherboards anymore. Also, why such an old distro?

Have you tried running sndconfig, as root, from a terminal or the command line?
