    have you been into alsamixer and checked that all the sound levels are turned up? Open up a console and type
    Code:
    alsamixer
    start some music playing and play around with the levels.

    Can you post what the make/model of the sound card is, and also the output of the command
    Code:
    lsmod
    as root.

    thank you very much for help
    actually i think i'm going to switch to kanotix. not only because it had sound automatically.

    i have had some problems installing knoppix. it said it can't write a couple of files and now it's working slightly weird. especially the polish support which i do need 'cause i have to write things somehow...

    i'll see how i can manage with kanotix and hope i won't have to trouble you again.

    thank you once again
