    In normal Linux distributions you need to get alsahttp://www.alsa-project.org installed.check in puppy whether any config tools available.also check their website and forums.you can try modprobe the modules.check needed modules loaded using the below commands.also if mixer is available unmute relevent volume controls
    Code:
    lspci 
    whether it lists the soundcard

    Code:
    lsmod  |grep snd
    http://www.puppylinux.com/faq.htm
    between alsa>=1.0.7 supports Intel 915GV Intel Azalia/HDA onboard audio.it isnt the old ac'97 found on other intel cards since i use 915GAV mobo. :)
    my 915GAV's lsmod |grep snd shows as below:
    Code:
    sarge:~# lsmod |grep snd
    snd_hda_intel          17328  3

    I downloaded the multisession iso of puppy linux and it worked. it has detected all my hardware incuding sound card. For a 63 MB distro, it was fantastic. does it mean that ubuntu and Red Hat and Suse will be better than this. I am immensely impressed.
