Satish  -  thanks for your comments.  Maybe there is hope here afterall.
I believe I have ALSA working.  I believe that is what got my sound
working.  But not all of it.  What is the test to show that ALSA is
working?  Does it have a config file?  Is there a command line I can run
to check to see that it is turned on, or at least installed??

Sorry for the questions, but you have me a sudden 'ray' of hope..
