Also, I'd download a copy of the Knoppix DVD or CD iso(1), burn it, and boot
with that.  If the sound works, and then note which drivers it uses(2).  The
Knoppix hardware detection has always been outstanding in my experience.

Hope that helps.


 I would recommend doing the same thing with Ubuntu actually.  What distro are you using right now that the sound isn't working in?
