Sound server & mic problem on 10.04

I just installed backtrack 5 (kde version - based on Ubuntu 10.04 LTS)  for
some testing purposes, but its giving me problems as an operating system.

The sound server isn't working, even after a lot of searching, I cant seem
to make it work, so only one program can play sound at a time. I downloaded
the Pulse Audio packages but I'm having trouble setting them up. Also, I can
hear the microphone from the speakers (after messing with my sound mixer),
but the sound recorder or the pidgin voice calls don't seem to pick up any

Any Idea?
