Try 'kldload snd_ich' (as root), and 'dmesg' to see if your card is 
recognized. If that doesn't do the trick, try the other snd_ drivers (you can 
find them in /boot/kernel/). To make it permanent, add 'snd_ich_load="YES"' 
to /boot/loader.conf.

   Option ZAxisMapping 4 5
to the mouse section of your /etc/X11/XF86Config. This is a FAQ, and you 
probably should've been able to find it through Google.
