Um.. I think that's probably true of any OS...  At least the worst thing
about Linux isn't that it crashes too often ;-)

I'm surprised you don't get any sound when playing a CD..  You should be
able to hear that even if the card isn't recognized by the OS (unless an
amp somewhere along the line isn't getting turned on or something..)

Try running 'cat /proc/devices' and see if there is a line

14 sound

and also maybe send us the output of 'cat /dev/sndstat'

What?!?  And miss out on this fun? :-p
