Same problem here. I have a HP 4455.
I suspect that even if the ALSA wizard detects four sound cards, none may be compatible. Otherwise, why is there no sound icon? Likely the operating system is perfect it just doesnt know how to recognize the card that worked with Windows 98. I probably have to take the hood off the computer and visually identify which actual soundcard it is there. Then once I have that I can determine if that card works with Linux. I suspect it does not. And I dont believe its a matter of working memory(RAM). It seems that Lucid 5.2 is an excellent tool to save computers. Getting the sound and running programs is another matter. Im not sure how to run programs yet, I believe I have to read Barrys work on compiling code.
