I'm new to Linux.... and having a problem with the sound
Go to the Mandrake Control centre and find the Harddrake bit. The menu on the left will list devices and - I hope - your card. That's a start anyway!
You need to find which driver is linked to your card. Soundblasters are well supported. I'm at a Windows machine now, so can't step you through this very well. The driver you might like to try is Emu10k1 (I think).
There's some help available from within mcc: a 'Troubleshooting' button. It can take a little while to set up your sound, but well worth it. I have the same card and - using ALSA - it works almost too well!
A screeching sound? Trying removing the Linkin Park cd from your player (just kidding)
PS: You will need to supply your user password to access the control centre. A problem a lot of people have is this: they get the sound set up and hear nothing. If you're using ALSA, it might be muted by default. You will need to unmute everything that seems relevant ...
