The sound card is fully supported.

This can be fixed by putting the following in /etc/modprobe.d/sound

alias snd-card-0 snd-hda-intel
options snd-hda-intel index=0 model=dell

Now reboot.

If you adjust the mixer, you'll hear sound. Hurrah! But if you reboot everything is quiet. A pox on you!!

# apt-get install alsa-utils

Set the sound to the desired levels:

# alsamixer

Press esc twice to exit and:

# alsactl store

Note, may have to add alsactl restore to /etc/rc.local, but I didn't in Debian Lenny.
