It sounds like you have an ISA sound card, I'm not sure if Puppy can detect these type of cards as even Windows has trouble with some of them.
If you have any PCI slots you could try a PCI sound card and see if Puppy detects it.

ISA are the long black slots and PCI are usually shorter white slots.

No. Isa and PCI are physically different connections ( and connectors for that matter ) One won't fit into the other.

Check and see if you have a pci slot before you get a pci card though. If the PC is too old it may not even have one.

If this is the case, then I'm not sure what to suggest ( apart from 'running silent' ).

Sorry I can't be more help. My motherboard has all the sound/video everything built into it - so my knowledge of cards is rapidly diminishing !
