Default How does one get sound working under a fresh Debian 3.0 install?

Hi Guys,

I've recently constructed a PVR/HTPC and I'm trying to get myth on there.

Unfortunatley I cannot use KnoppMyth so I'm looking at using plain debian 3.0 with a 2.6 Kernel. (Support for my DVB-t Capture Card).

How the hell do you get sound installed and working on a vanilla net-inst install of debian with a nforce2?

I've downloaded the drivers from http://www.nvidia.com/linux and installed them.

I've tried MPG123 but it produces no audio, where to from here?

Do I need alsa or anything else installed?

Where have I gone wrong, what have I forgotton?

Remember I'm using a stock 3.0 install with a 2.6 kernel, nothing more and nothing less installed.

If I'm to run mpg123 on a mp3, it reports that it's playing but I get no audio out.
