Sound problems

I can play CDs through my headphone jack on the drive, but Debian doesn't
like my sound card.

Tkdesk always looks for one at /dev/audio and tells me that it doesn't
exist. I know that /dev/audio doesn't exist but how do I get it there? I
looked for a sound card driver package, and only found AWE ones and nas.

nas tells me it can't connect to the audio server or something like that.

I tried

man nas

which told me that nas is for playing sound over a network, so is this
really what I want? All I want to do is:
1) Play CDs thru sound card
2) Listen to/Record .wav files
3) Listen to MIDI files

Is there a package that I've missed that'll support my soundblaster 16
compatible card?
