gentoo 2005.0
toshiba satellite, P4 2.67GHz, 512MB, Ali5451 sound chipset

Hey all, new to the list. I've read through the gentoo forums looking for help
and finding some advice that appears at first glance to be somewhat
contradictory when it comes to whether to compile a module driver in the kernel
for the snd_ali5451 driver or not.

The module loads just fine on boot up, but I have no sound in gentoo; alsa-mixer
shows no channels muted. I can tri-boot into XP or Fedora Core 3 and sound works
quite well... Aside from the wifi driver (also having issues with it) I'm *this*
close to dumping XP altogether and just using gentoo on the laptop full time.

What information would be most beneficial for folks on the list to help track
down where I've gone wrong?
