Have you compiled you kernel for soundcard support ?

Or, are you using the sound module ?

Use this commands...

# pnpdump > /etc/isapnp.conf

edit the file isapnp.conf
in the last part of the file you will find # (ACT Y) or something like this.. uncomment it !! (delete the #) and then

use
#sndconfig

You will probably have an error for MIDI in sndconfig ... ingnore it .. you will be set!!

You will now have your sndcard enabled ... you also need to config ... your Gnome sounds .. if you are using Gnome...!!

When I go to sndconfig it says that the kernel is not setup for this.  What do I do to fix this problem?

As I wrote earlier ... you have to configure your kernel for sound support. Do this (should work on most Linux box's):

# cd /usr/src/linux
# make  xconfig

Configure the soundcard settings along with the other options. I cannot in this message describe the hole process, but if you look at this site www.linux.org ... you may find the information you need to do the work.

After "make xconfig" do

# make dep
# make bzImage
# make modules
# make modules_install

Know setup the sound card with

# sndconfig
