SuSE 9.1 and KDE 3.5, can they work together?

Hello, I'm new to Linux and I'm still learning some stuff.

I've recently installed SuSE 9.1 on one of my PC's. I followed the directions in a few of the stickies on how to update using the YaST repositories and I can update the system with no issues and YOU works fine. However, after I update KDE from 3.2 to the current version (3.5), I cannot seem to use my soundcard.

If I open up XMMS it tells me that I need to check my sound card avalibility. I look in YaST under my hardware section and find that my soundcard is fine and it even works. But still, no sound from XMMS or other programs.

Is there a problem that KDE 3.5 has with SuSE 9.1?

Is there an easy way to backup or archive my system before I try to update anything else so I won't need to reinstall (it's easier to do this at this point since I'm still noobish to Linux) SuSE.

Thanks in advance for any help.

rpm -qa|grep xmms

Unfortunately, I already re-installed SuSE 9.1. At this point in my Linux career, it was easier to re-install than to attempt to fix it. I'd like to update, but I want to be able to archive what i have now so if anothre issue comes up, i can just take a step back.
