Do you know your sound card model? FWIK, you have two way to use your
sc: support with the kernel or support via ALSA.

If your card is a common sound card, probably you will find a kernel
driver that support it, otherwise try with ALSA (www.alsa-project.org).

Don't remember the steps to configure the card with the kernel (usually
you need only to add a line in /etc/modutils if you use a kernel
module), with alsa there is a text base utility to help you to configure
the card. Look in your nearest debian archive (your CD sets or a web
archive) for the proper packages.
