sound on pavilion 8660 running debian and kde

I am having trouble getting any sound to work with linux. /dev/dsp claims not to exist even though it does, sndconfig (ported from RedHat) names the onboard card as Rockell but says that it is not supported. X multimedia, which comes with KDE claims that my sound card is not configured properly. I am new to linux and have done nothing previously to try to get sound working on the system. Any help or advice is appreciated.
Thanks, paul

Re: sound on pavilion 8660 running debian and kde

the website you provided was related to my product, but didn't provide me with the linux related drivers I was looking for. I have come across linuxant.com, which have taken over porting chamelion drivers to linux.
