I have the exact same card, Potato and Helix GNOME. It works very well.
Have tou tried to log out and then in again after joining group `audio'?
Start your mixer (`gmix' AFAIR) and see if the volume is down (but I
don't think this is the problem though).

1: What's the output of `ls -l /dev/dsp'?

   Here it's:

   crw-rw----    1 root     audio     14,   3 jul  5 19:44 /dev/dsp

2: What's the output of `lsmod'?
   You should see these two:

   es1371                 23872   1
   soundcore               2596   4 [es1371]

If this doesn't work, post the results of the above commands and your

Works fine in SuSE though, with the same card.
