The main thing is that the soundcard is O.K. and with you're MP3 player
working then the soundcard setup shouldn't be the issue.

I had the same issue with my setup and it was resolved by "enabling" it
under the Gnome Control Panel - Sawfish Setup first and then the
Multimedia section ( as per previous post). This was after creating the
various dev files  ( char-major-14 ) to get the soundcard working.

If you're still having problems then reply directly using my above
address and we'll try and solve it "off list" the solution can be posted
back when found. 


Long computations which yield zero are probably all for naught.
