Sound on c-media CM8738

Hi all,
I've installed slack 10.0 and I'm trying to get sound working without much luck (hold fire there all you about to jump in with alsamixer etc.. )

I can get sound if I use the audio cable to the cd-player (at least I could in 9.1 so I assume I could in 10.0 without much trouble) but I want to use the soundcard without having to use the audio cable, like I can in windoze. Has anyone managed to do this?
