Hello, I know absolutely nothing about what I am doing, so forgive my ignorance. I have a Soundblaster Live! 24bit PCI soundcard and I cannot find out how to make it work. Strangely I hear a sound at the login screen but that is where it stops. Once in the system I hear nothing. I tried some things from a few tutorials and forum posts but with no success. I don't know what I am doing and I am worried I may do something to cause more problems. I am using Ubuntu 8.04.

Here is some info that I noticed other people ask for:
