I cannot play any sound in my new system.

I have an onboard sound card which plays in windows.

I have read pages of text relating to sound and have tried using the CD rom that came with my soundcard.

Can you help me IN SIMPLE TERMS to find a driver/software that will work?

The rest of the Linux system seems to work OK and I have mastered some very useful applications.
