Kubuntu 6.06---No Sound with VIA 8237 AC97 chip

Hi.

I just installed Kubuntu 6.06 (64-bit) onto my desktop, which runs off a Soltek KT8Pro Motherboard and an AMD64 chip.  The thing is, it refuses to play any sound whatsoever.

1. The sound works and is hooked up right, as verified through booting into Windows XP

2. Kmix shows all sliders unmuted and turned up

3. The sound hardward shows to have detected the sound chip correctly and has no apparent issues with it.

4. Output: $ lsmod | grep -i

One possibility I've heard is that potentially, my Logitech USB Webcam w/Mic might be mistaken somehow as a soundcard. If that's the case, I've no idea how to verify it or how to correct it.

As far as skill level with linux goes, I know how to and am comfortable with editing config files, but not skilled enough to troubleshoot them. In otherwords, I know enough to mess up the OS if I go tinkering, but not enough to fix it.

Any help from any one would be greatly appreciated. Thanks, Rob
