Try 'cat /dev/sndstat' to see whether your sound is set up correctly (read
the sound HOWTOs as well). Quite likely, you need to reconfigure your
kernel for whatever sound chip your mother board uses. Get ready to open
up your box and have a look.
A good place to find information on current supported sound devices is
www.linux.org.uk/OSS. As of kernel versions 2.2.X (perhaps a bit earlier,
but not 2.0.X) OSS has been implemented in the kernel source, with
substantial documentation included. Good luck.
