Default Mandrake Linux Finely

I finely got mandrake linux 9,1 to install and now what.Ive got most of my things working.Printer, vid card,cable modem,I know it will take a while to get used to but what im having a problem with is my sound.I have a msi kt4 ultra with on board sound.And cant find any drivers in the mandrake setup files.I know from scanning the forum that some of you are linux freaks so thought this would be a good place to ask for guidence.where can I go to get drivers for things like sound,printers,video updates ect.ect.ect. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks Pat S.

Here's one link you could try. I didn't see your card on there but sometimes different cards run the same chipsets, so you could download it and see if it detects anything.

Getting Sound to work in Linux is pain. I got Mandrake 9.0 (DOwnloading 9.1 currently). Anyway, if u have on board, it will be a extremely hard thing to get it working. Just try going to the sound settings and chaning around (Threaded sound, ALSA and stuff) Good luck
