Hmmm...  CUPS (cupsys) is installed, but are the drivers?  You could try installing them if they're not already (as root):

apt-get install foomatic-filters foomatic-filters-ppds hpijs linuxprinting.org-ppds

Try something like:

lsmod | grep "snd_"

I'm very sorry to hear that.  I'm curious, do you have a USB thumbdrive or some other media you could back thing up on?  USB support in Debian is pretty good these days, and if you run into problems, I'm sure we could help you out.

Sorry if this message is formatted or or wrapped funny.  The client I'm using right now does not handle replies very well.
