Unsupported Soundcard - Help!

Hello all

Trying this one yet again - I suppose I may just have to 
buy another soundcard, recommendations anyone?
BTW sndconfig tells me the card isn't supported.
My new PC has a built in soundcard and despite a lot of RTFMing and 
experimentation I still have no idea how to make it work.
The motherboard manual says:

"Integrated Audio Controller in Intel 82801DB I/O Controller Hub (ICH4)"
"AD 1981A/Realtek ALC202A Audio Codec '97"

What I fondly imagine to be the relevant portion of "lspci -v":

"00:1f.5 Multimedia audio controller: Intel Corp.: Unknown device 24c5 (rev

Has anyone got any ideas, or more information I need to supply??
After spending 2 or 3 days getting the DVD player to work it seems a shame 
not to be able to hear it!
