1) Problems with Sound
**************************

Last night I installed Kubuntu. And again
I have no sound output. 

Sound never worked with any release of Ubuntu
til today, unfortunately.

This will be of interest for you - Ubuntu Developers -
because I work with a PC of Siemens-Fujitsu Model Scaleo T.
I think there are many PCs of this model out there and they
all will have problems with sound output on Ubuntu.

This PC has a SiS Sound Controller on the mainboard and Ubuntu
fails to load the right modules for it. Below I included
the "dmesg|grep audio" , "lspci" and "lsmod" outputs on Kubuntu
- which i installed last night- and on Knoppix which gives me a
working sound. Interestingly a "normal" install of Sarge with X+KDE 
gives also a working sound.

Maybe you can look forward to include modules for this Soundchip
in the future releases of Ubuntu.

But otherwise: Great work!Kudos!

2) Help Request
***************************
What can I do to make my Kubuntu load the modules Knoppix loads
so that I get a working sound?
