Attention all--

I'm tempted to say that this is just my 2 cent$ (damned character map is *
useless* for ASCII characters!) but what I'm about to express is not an *
opinion* of mine, but -- rather -- a *problem* of mine.

So my primary/master hard drive craps out on me (BUT, *GET THIS*:  It works
OK as a *secondary/slave*.  Go figure!  I certainly can't!); I manage to
acquire another hard drive (SATA, I believe -- the data cable is much more
narrow), and apparently install it correctly because I'm able to do a clean
install of Jaunty Jackalope before upgrading to Karmic Koala.  Anyway, one
nagging issue that I haven't been able to resolve is sound; and  I'm Pretty
Damned Certain that I don't have anything muted.  I know that I've seen some
threads where people have mentioned sound issues (don't remember, though, if
it was for 09.10 or 10.04), but for the life of me, I *cannot* locate them!
If someone would be kind enough point me to the correct web page and tell me
exactly what search terms will bring up sound issues for 09.10, then I'll be
mightily obliged.
