ThinkPad A21m sound card instructions request.


I'm wondering if anybody has instructions on how to get the sound card
on an IBM ThinkPad A21m to work.

Currently I get the following error message when I log in using X (KDE)
as a regular user:

	Error while initializing the sound driver:
	device /dev/dsp can't be opened (Permission denied)

	The sound server will continue, using the null output device.

However, when I log in as root then instead of the string "(Permission
denied)" I have the string "(No such device)".

It should be noted that I really haven't done anything to get this
working so I'm looking for instructions on the normal process... this
isn't some special case scenario where the sound card just won't work
(well... I hope it isn't).  It's just that I've been looking for
information on how to set up the soundcard and I can't find any.  I'm a
Linux beginner so please be gentle... ;o) (a step by step guide would be
just great!).

Kind regards, 
	Stefan Freyr
