Click Start, Programs, Accessories, Entertainment, Volume Control.  When the volume control applet opens, click File then Properties.  Under "Show the following volume controls", make sure there is a check in Mic volume.  Click OK then uncheck the mute under the Mic volume slider.

I know a thing or two about this, being a musician and sound engineer. The card you have is just too old, and is not thoroughly supported by Windows XP, or 2000. These OSes have a different software architecture that is layered, and because of that normal drivers from the W98 era do not function. Maybe you'll find someone who has developed drivers independently, but this is highly unlikely, as newer and better cards have been developed since then. Or maybe you'll get it to work, but my guess is it'll work intermittently at best. My best advice is to invest in a 20$ SoundBlaster Live!Value, which is still supported by Creative and Microsoft, and will just plain do a better job than what you have now.

Hope this helps!
