It does. Thanks to all responders. I am not using alsa.

I am also having problems since the system does not seem to recognise my
mike (it is not seen by aumix). I don't think it is hardware since I
have the same problem on two different boxes (both running Sarge). Do I
need some special modules to get the mike recognised? 

I don't understand sound I think.
