Re: Supercilious replies and I really do want your help

OK, try this.

If you are running a 2.4 kernel then install like this:
apt-get alsa-utils alsa-drivers 
then run:
and follow the instructions it should find your sound card and install the 
driver for it.

If you have a 2.6 kernel then just apt-get install alsa-conf and then run 
alsaconf. In the debian kernel-image-2.6 the alsa drivers are built as 
modules already, since the alsa sound system/drivers are now a standard part 
of the 2.6 kernels.
