Sub_title: this is what worked for me

I cannot take credit for this but I will pass it on, nonetheless.

First, make sure that soundcard is set to AUTO in the BIOS.
Then, find & open modprobe.conf in the /etc directory.
Ctrl+A > Backspace (clears ALL text)

Copy this:
blacklist snd-opl3sa2
alias snd-nm256 snd-sb8
alias snd-card-0 snd-sb8
options snd-card-0 index=0
options snd-sb8 irq=5 port=0x220 dma8=1
install snd-sb8 /sbin/modprobe snd_seq; /sbin/modprobe snd_opl3_synth; /sbin/modprobe --ignore-install snd-sb8 && /usr/sbin/alsactl restore >/dev/null 2>&1 || :
remove snd-sb8 { /usr/sbin/alsactl store >/dev/null 2>&1 || : ; }; /sbin/modprobe -r --ignore-remove snd-sb8

Ctrl+V (paste above code into the now blank modprobe.conf)
Save & close
Reboot and VIOLA

The volume is not very loud, but there was no sound before. I can now play videos with sound. This is on a 1999 machine with a 366 MHz processor and upgraded to 256 MB RAM.
