Does 'lsmod | grep snd' give you anything?  This should show you what kernel
modules were loaded for your soundcard.  And Also 'uname -r' will give you
the current kernel release.  If you know (or can find out) what kernel
module is required for your soundcard then 'sudo modprobe {module}' will
load it.

Hmm, what else?
