Sound problem on Ubuntu?

I’ve been hearing a lot of good things about Ubuntu so I decided to try it live CD. I liked the interface since it was different so I decided to do a duel boot with Windows XP. I installed all the updates for Ubuntu and even got my ATi Radeon 9550 working which I was happy about, but when it came to my sound card there was no driver. I have a Creative Sound Blaster PCI512 which I bought back when XP first came out because XP didn’t support the old AWE32 series until later. Well the card has drivers for Windows 98SE and XP but no Linux :( I hate having to buy sound cards because of OS changes and not because of a defect. I saw that there are drivers for the PCI128 which was a lower series than my card, so why no PCI512? Did my sound card fall through the crack between the PCI128 and Audigy series for Linux?

Ubuntu Linux sound issue?

I recently installed Ubuntu Linux and have a duel boot with my Windows XP. I had never used Linux before and fell in LOVE. I would make a complete transition, but unfortunately, my sound card will not work. I have run my Live CD on other machines and (wouldn’t you know it) the only computer that the sound won’t work on is my Sony Vaio. I consider myself a very computer savvy person, but I am all new to Linux. So please keep the instructions “idiot-friendly”. My sound card is a Intel 82801DB-ICH4 (Alas Mixer). I have a Sony Vaio PCG-4C1L. Oh, just so everyone is aware, I have tried ajusting advanced volume control and all of the articles on the Ubuntu homepage using the search key “no sound sony vaio”.
I am running version 8.04. Also, my system is a laptop (speakers are built in)
