My problem is that I have no sound?  I assumed I installed the sound

Are you loading the correct sound module for your chipset? On my Ultra5
I've used the `cs4231` module with the `kernel-image-2.4.18-sun4u`
kernel that was available via `apt-get install kernel-image-2.4.18-sun4u`

You can test this by becoming root (su -) then typing `modprobe cs4231`

If it works then make it permanent by typing:

echo "cs4231" >> /etc/modules

Don't forget to check your mixer/volume levels with aumix for example.

Good luck.
