Biostar 6100-939

I have built a Lanparty system using the Biostar 6100-939 mb,AMD64 3500+, OCZ 4000 Gold ram and Mepis 3.4-3.rc3 OS. Onboard video works great, but I have no audio. ALSA is unable to find a driver. "lspci" finds onboard audio "nVidia MCP51, AC97 Audio Controller Rev2." I'm 72 years old and my hearing is all but gone. That said, it bugs the heck out of me that I'm unable to fix the problem. Help would be much appreciated from this Linux newbie.

You probably need to install the sound drivers from Nvidia:

If you notice at the top of the page it mentions that the latest version adds support for nforce 410 motherboards.

To get it to install, you may need to recompile your kernel or at the least install kernel headers for your kernel. You can try installing the kernel headers with:
apt-get install linux-headers-$(uname -r)
Then try running the Nvidia nforce installer. If it fails to run, you may need to install the kernel source and recompile your kernel. There is a guide to doing that here: I wrote it a long time ago, but it still shows what is basically involved. You can install the latest kernel source with:
apt-get install linux-source-2.6.15
