If so which driver should I use?
At the risk of answering an old dead thread ... This is NOT likely a driver problem.

Go to YaST > Hardware > Sound > Other > Volume and turn the volume for both PCM and Master UP to about 95%. Close YaST. Then go to your mixer (kmix for kde and alsamixer for gnome) and move your PCM and Master volume up (or down) to a comfortable level, such that there is no distortion. Note every time you start a new multimedia application you may need to adjust your PCM level in your mixer.

Reference the audio error message, thats a bug in openSUSE-11.1, and there is a work around fix available.
