    First, maybe you should upgrade your kernel. If you use Woody, it would
    probably be a good idea to get kernel-image-2.4.18-1-686 from
    security.debian.org. Older versions have some security problems, and I
    don't think your packages were fixed.

    Second, please be more precise. What driver did you load with modprobe,
    and what /exactly/ was the error message, if there was any?

    Third, make sure you tried the right driver. You need emu10k1.
    modprobe emu10k1
    will load it.

    Fourth, make sure you are in the audio group if you want to have sound
    as a normal user. Permissions on device files like /dev/dsp are quite
    restrictive, and only root and the audio group can access it.

    Fifth, if you want to load the module automatically, either add a line
    emu10k1
    to /etc/modules, manually or by using modconf, or add a line
    alias sound-slot-0
    to /etc/modutils/aliases or your own file in /etc/modutils and run
    update-modules.

    best regards

    Hm, not a lot to go on so sorry to ask the obvious, but you have got
    the volume turned up and checked that the channels aren't muted? I use
    "kmix" for this, but there are other tools...
