Sorry my fault, I wasn't clear.  I do know that the stuff in init.d gets
run at startup/shutdown.  I looked thru the alsa script and saw it calls
alsactl.  I just ran "/etc/init.d/alsa stop and start" just to see if
I'd get sound, which I did not.

If I run alsamixer, it gives me the message:
"No mixer elems found"
