[linux-audio-user] Intel 82801BA Sound

I have an HP 7965 desktop dual-booting between XP and RH Linux 8.0.
The standard installation did not get the sound card working, and
every time I tried to use XMMS, an error message would pop up saying
that the sound card could not be contacted.

I installed the ALSA driver, library, and utilities as per the
instructions at
and then used insmod to load them, also as per the instructions at
that page. 

Now xmms and the system seem to recognize the module and the sound
card-I don't get any error messages-but I don't get any sound. I
used alsamixer to unmute the system, but I still get nothing. It
works fine in XP, so I don't know what the problem would be. Here is
the relevant output from vi /proc/ioports:

Thanks for any help you might have.
