No Sound KDE

You would think that with all the problems with sound in KDE a 'fix-it'
would be found in the mailing lists. Sorry, but here we go again.
Present situation :
Using the Control Center [ Mandrake9.1 - KDE3.1.3 (I think)] and hitting
the test button I get the Start Up sound (KDE) no problem.
When I first installed, I had the Start Up sound playing at KDE start up.
Trying to access too many partitions and plug and plays at the same time
caused a 'ram dump' which needed my Linux Installation to be rebooted
with the Start Up Floopy to repair damage done to my /boot partition.
Everything works fine since, except of course the sound.
I have two CDROMS, RW & R only. I drop my favourite Rock'n'Roll disk in
to either to listen to good old.............. but no sound. ie. Using
KsCD I get the LED working fine on the CDROM but there is no sound.
Using a konsole I issue : $ aumix and the GUI comes up fine, but always
with the 'mute' option checked? Either way, whatever I do with it, still
The settings in Control Center for sound are all set to their defaults.
Close down for the night and reboot the next day............. still no
I might be a newbie but I am prepared to investigate further.
Where do I look first?
What must be in place and where for aRTsd to work correctly?
I miss my Rock'n'Roll while cruising the web. Care to help me get it back?
Big or small, a challenge requires the same commitment to resolve.
