Help finding device...

I am trying to enable sound on my Debian [Woody] Linux install on a
genuine Intel P3 system.   Running KDE, the audio control panel is unable
to map /dev/dsp to any sound device.   I'm running kernel 2.4.24.

dmesg reveals:

Intel 810 + AC97 Audio, version 0.24, 00:55:50 Feb  1 2004
PCI: Found IRQ 9 for device 00:1f.5
PCI: Sharing IRQ 9 with 00:1f.3
PCI: Setting latency timer of device 00:1f.5 to 64
i810: Intel ICH2 found at IO 0xef00 and 0xe800, MEM 0x0000 and 0x0000, IRQ
i810_audio: Audio Controller supports 6 channels.
i810_audio: Defaulting to base 2 channel mode.
i810_audio: Resetting connection 0
ac97_codec: AC97 Audio codec, id: ADS96 (Analog Devices AD1885)
i810_audio: AC'97 codec 0 Unable to map surround DAC's (or DAC's not
present), t
otal channels = 2
i810_audio: setting clocking to 41379

and lspci reveals:

00:1f.5 Multimedia audio controller: Intel Corp. 82820 820 (Camino 2)
Chipset AC'97 Audio Controller (rev 05)

As we can see, the kernel knows about the sound system, but there is no
indication of what device is actually being used.   I did a cursory check
of /proc but didn't find anything useful.
