    If you used a 2.6 kernel, did you remember to compile alsa and the alsa-drivers as modules (not compile it into the kernel)? If you did, you can just run these commands as root to enable the soundcard:
    emerge alsa-utils
    About the nvidia-card, look here:

    alsa channels also come muted you can use alsamixer to unmute. If you need a great how-to to guide you here is one.
