It'd be of more help if you'd report the output of /sbin/lsmod as root and /sbin/lspci as root, and would actually state the brand and model of the card, not what it's capabilities are.

lspci pretty much tells me what module I am searching for. Try to remember what is the model and brand of your hardware. Meanwhile type alsamixer, cat /dev/urandom > /devdsp (then control+C), turn up the sound knob, turn on External Amplifier is you can get in alsamixer (press M to unmute, and up and down for volume control).

If the sound card says it's busy, then type fuser /dev/dsp, and look for the process' name in the ps -A command.

Report your findings here.

It'd be better if you told me the brand/model of your computer.

Tan, The results from /sbin/lspci tells me that you have not yet installed the pci utilities (I'm pretty sure that they're not installed by default in 2005LE). You may want to - the lspci command is very nice to have when you're installing new hardware (or troubleshooting old hardware).
To install it, just go to menu->system->configure your computer->packages (um... I'm doing this from memory - but I think that's close) and after giving your password for root, search for pci-utilities (and then install).
Then, lspci will tell you the details of every pci card you have plugged into your motherboard.
Good luck!

Is this your system?

I have a hard time finding a install howto for your model. Googling your card brings up no success at all.
The last hope is in the lspci utility.

sure, before you buy, check the HCL, there is a lot of good reviews on which card works... and which doesn't work too well..... Google your card with the keyword google and make sure everything is fine before buying.

I have, personally, an atiixp card. very good card. Altough I'm feeling like leaving arts to a sound server with less latency...

I still suggest to get lspci and keep on debugging, but that's your call.
