Thats a odd one !
Have you logged in as root, and typed 'sndconfig' ?
Here is where mine is located
Possibly you logged in as root by doing a 'su' ?
If you do this then the root will have the path that the user had, and it wont
include "/usr/sbin" !
That means when you issue the command 'sndconfig' as root you will get this
bash: sndconfig: command not found
So log in as root from a normal user with this command 'su -l' and you will
have the paths that root has.
Then the above command would work!
to see your paths issue the 'set' command.

Look in /etc/fstab using 'less' ie
/dev/hda1 / ext2 defaults 1 1
/dev/hdd1 /home ext2 defaults 1 2
/dev/cdrom /mnt/cdrom iso9660 noauto,owner,ro 0 0
/dev/fd0 /mnt/floppy auto noauto,owner 0 0
none /proc proc defaults 0 0
none /dev/pts devpts gid=5,mode=620 0 0
/dev/hdc1 swap swap defaults 0 0
