Onboard Sound... REALY NEW TO LENUX...Like I don't know squat.

I am running Linux RH Mandrake 6.5 on an Asus P5A-B mother board, AMD K6-II 450mhz. and I have onboard sound ( 16 bit). I have set up linux and have the KDE and GNOME interfaces. when I set it up (two days ago) it did not ask me anything about my sound, and I am not sure what i need to do to configure it ( if anything). I have not tried it ( I blough out my speakers) it yet, but I am getting new speakers this week end, and don't want to screw it up if I need to do anything. I also would like to know of any good Linux books writen for RH Mandrake 6.5 ( if any ) or anything that would be good for this system.

I need more information on your built-in sound card.  1)Is it a SB16 compatible device? 2) Do you know what the setting are for the device?( I/O, IRQ, DMA, etc.

Have you compiled the kernel with sound support?

Do you know how to configure the kernel?

If you don't - stop and get Running Linux by Welsh

If you do, proceed

If you haven't try the following:

Under the sound selection part on the kernel configuration menu select:
Sound card support
100% SB compatibles (SB16/32/64/etc)
220 I/O
5 IRQ
1 DMA
5 16 bit DMA
0 MPU401
-1 SM MPU401

save, exit, rebuild the kenel, and try to play an audio CD.
