While in your Graphical environment, click on the round green button in the bottom left hand corner, that will open up your menu. Go to the System menu and then run the program "YaST". It will then ask you for your root password, so enter the password you set when you installed SuSE.

Inside of YaST, click on "Hardware" on the left side, and on the right side, choose "Sound".

YaST should go through a detection process, and find your sound card, when it does, it will list it in the box. Select your sound card there, then click the volume button. Make sure that your volume settings are turned up, and press the "test" button. That should play a sound. Hit "Next" then hit finished, and that should be it.
i tried that, when it goes through the detection/confiuration process is comes back with and error: the kernel module snd-cmipci for sound support could not be loaded.
