sound question

Forums: 

I know this has probably been asked 100x before, I'm sorry.

I'm using the latest version of Ubuntu, and i really like it. It would be my main OS but, i cannot get the sound to work! The video's play back perfectly, just no sound. I do have a sound card (Creative X-Fi Xtreme gamer) I would like to use it, but i really don't care if i have to go back and use my on-board sound. Can somebody please give me a very basic walk-through on how to get this to work?! I'm desperate, I will mail you $1 if you can help!! :)

I think this is the right forum to post this question, if not, soooorry.

THANKS!
