...Sorry to 'steal' this thread and post about a sound problem of my own,
My sound card, which is built onto an Intel Celeron-type motherboard does
not appear to allow sound balance to be changed. I tried this with Ubuntu
in the past and it was not working. I also had Mandrake, but I can't re-

machine ever since (several months), but still the same issue.
When attempting to shift balance to one side of the output (speakers),
there is no effect. It's as if the balance function is altogether ignored.
It's quite necessary in my case because a certain side is channelled to a
separate room. At present, I need to physically pull out wires to mute one
