I have a problem with and audio card, I already        
      the needed modules in my case:

0000:00:1f.5 Multimedia Audio Controller: Intel Corp
82801EB/ER (ICH5/ICH5R) AC97 Audio Controller (rev 02)
Module        Size   Used by  Not taited
i810_audio    21372   2
ac97_codec    11252   0       [i810_audio]
soundcore      3268   2       [i810_audio]

now the question is, if I have the correct modules  
for my sound card

1. why I can not hear any sound?.
2  How can I configure the sound card once the modules
are loaded?
3. There is a command to do this?, which one?

I already try sndconf

I will appreciate any help or point to a source.      
If you don't have any error messages, like devices
unavailable or like
that, and your user is in the audio group, maybe you
only need to
raise the volume, so you can try it installing a mixer
(this is only a guess)

To pass some configuring options to your soundcard
(what options
depends on your brand or model) IIRC you can add them
on your
/etc/modutils file.

Thanks for the feedback, I already have a mixer, and it
does not work, I think may be I have the wrong driver
installed. Is posible load a driver even if this one is
not the correct?

I am trying other thing right now I did this
#cat file.wav >/dev/audio 
Device or resource busy

any idea.

Thanks again.

The modules you have loaded are OSS (Open Sound
System?) modules which
are installed for compatibilty. You may find you need
the alsa modules
loaded. Alsa (advanced linux sound architecture)
modules all start with

Try modprobe  (the above to suit what you want)
Alternatively install alsaconf.
Check out http://alsa.opensrc.org and

Thanks to both of you that follow this thread. The
solution was the one that Robin point.

Then I did:

#apt-cache search alsa
#apt-get alsa-common alsa-utils ...

once the alsa was installed I just run

and follow the instructions
#cd /etc/init.d
#./alsa start

voila works.

Again thanks and regards.
