Well, I get my drives mounted, and try and play an mp3... does it work? No. Im not quite sure what I have to do, or even if my sound card(s) are installed. I am completely new to linux (I am using slackware if that makes a difference). I dont get any errors, it seems as if the file is playng fine, but there is no sound coming out of my speakers. If you need anything let me know, I can tell you. Both of my sound cards are - C-Media 5.1, SoundMAX 5.1 (soundmax is the onboard on my Asus A7V8X-X) Thanks in advance!

This may sound a little inslutling, but try the volume. Honestly, some times the volume faders are in wiered spots on some cards. You need to find your mixer, if your useing KDE KMix is probably your defualt, other wise there is probably something somewhere in your menue.

Fool around with the levels of various things, like on my system, the headphone level is what adjusts my main volume.

I say this because usually the system gives you an error if it doesn't know what to do with your sound cards. So I would try plugging my speakers into both outs and playing with the various levels.
