Since no one else has replied I'll ask the stupid questions...

has the sound worked on this mainboard before (eg windoze)
are the speakers plugged into the correct slot?
are the speakers powered?
have you tried running the sound as root?
what sort of sounds are you trying to generate?

Also, check to make sure that the sound is turned up in your mixer settings. Alsa has their weird thing with defaulting to mute when installed.
