Sound card configuration

I have recently installed mandrake 10, went well and was fairly easy to install, except for one teeny little problem.....the sound card configuration.
I tried to correctly configure the card (Intel 82801AA AC'97) which is onboard with the motherboard but it would not play the game. Now when I try to go into system configuration it brings up the first graphic saying that it is loading, but does nothing else and to make matters worse the graphic stays in place, coving all other windows when I open them, forcing me to logoff and relogin. If anyone has any ideas on how to get this thing attended to I would be very appreciative, please make any responses in "moron" text please, if its too highbrow and technical I won't understand anything you say

Thanks all

sounds like several different issues...

about the soundcard issue: you can run alsaconf (as root) and it will try to set-up your soundcard (if you have ALSA)...

just my two cents...
