I'm running Knoppix, another form of Debian, on a
Averatec laptop, which is a very new laptop with KDE

When I created a new kernel, I am not getting any
sound whatsoever, and now I am getting these errors:

root at Probot:/etc/init.d# uname -a
Linux Probot 2.4.21-acpi #1 Mon Jul 7 18:49:46 CEST
2003 i686 GNU/Linux

root at Probot:/etc/init.d# ./alsa-autoconfig

aumix: error opening mixer

root at Probot:/etc/init.d# ./aumix
Usage: /etc/init.d/aumix {start|stop|save}

root at Probot:/etc/init.d# ./aumix start
Restoring mixer settings: failed.

I've trolled around http://www.knoppix.net/forum/ and
irc and haven't been able to get an answer. 

BTW, I still have the older kernel lying around if
this is any help.
