Looks like you need ndiswrapper and the windows driver to get it going.


For the audio, the snd_intel_hda module should support that sound card. Do a '/sbin/lsmod' ( command without quotes ) and see if it is loaded.


I would suspect it is. If it is loaded, bring up alsamixer, and make sure you are not muted, and the volume is up.
