You can check to see if your sound card is configured by checking the information in /proc/interrupts and /proc/ioports and /proc/dma.  
 
  This will tell you if the system sees your card where it is supposed to be or not.  If your soundcard is a Plug-n-Play card you may need to get the PNPconfig utility to use it properly.

  To actually play the CD there are a variety of programs available, Xcd and work man are two of the most common X cd players.  Workbone is an application that plays the cd from the command line.

check your boot message with 'dmesg' command, you should see something like this,

Sound initialization started
<Sound Blaster 16> at 0x330 irq 5 dma 1
Sound initialization complete

If your sound card is not installed, you should recompile your kernel with sound support. Go to http://www.linux-howto.com and read Sound-HOWTO, Sound-Playing-HOWTO, Kernel-HOWTO.

You can also configure your sound card using 'sndconfig' command. If you run sndconfig and you get segmentation fault core dump message, then run 'sndconfig --noprobe'. Make sure you know the setting of your sound card.

To run audio cd, there are many choices (xplaycd, xcd, wmplay)
