Try the command dmesg to see if there is a possible error in detection of your hardware.
Most likely you will need to load a specific module for your audio, but this is a guess at this point.
You can change your home directory by editing the dsl line in /etc/passwd, but I don't really see what reason there is to do this. Do you honestly care what the name of your home directory is? Also, changing your home directory will break some features created specifically for DSL, unless you create a symlink to it named /home/dsl. If you just want to put your home directory on a permanent device, you can use the boot option home=device
