otay, have an HP Pavilion 8200 or something like that - loaded Jaunty via Wubi and got everything running except NO SOUND! have been trying to follow the NO SOUND Guide and run into huge problems - decided to follow Jakovasaur's advice above about upgrading ALSA - well followed steps and everything seemed to load but when I ran the cmd:

cat /proc/asound/version

got return of NO SUCH FILE OR DIRECTORY

so, Ubuntu gurus, where do I go from here!? looks like Ubuntu is NOT recognizing my sound card! but, I do get sound when doing shuitdown!
