Sound under Linux works very well. Getting it running is a little tricky, but once you get it going it works very well. So, here's some info to help get sound going.
The linux kernel supports the Crystal Audio PnP system of this computer, with the Crystal Audio 4232 drivers (cs4232). Note: The APMd package for download above includes all of the files I'll be mentioning here.
First, you want to set up your BIOS to deal with Linux and the sound card as the script is expecting it. To do this, I have a .bat for Windows or DOS which will run the "ps2" utility, which should be installed on your computer by default. If you have reinstalled Windows since then, you will have to do a custom install of the ThinkPad Utility and be sure to install the DOS version of the utility. This .bat file will also disable the internal modem (it doesn't work under Linux anyway), and enable the IR and serial ports, so edit it to meet your needs.
After configuring your computer to be able to use sound, you should then recompile your kernel under Linux to support the cs4232 sound card. You can use my config file, or just use it as a guideline to configure your own kernel.
After you get the kernel configured, simply run this script to load or unload the modules (sound control start or sound control stop)
Hope that helps
