Very welcome Cheryl I knew it would be easier for you if you knew where 
to find it. You may also be interested in installing both  gnome-panel 
and gnome-alsamixer.

gnome-panel has a gear icon and it produces you a dialog box and a list 
of installed programs, select one and it launches the application. Ends 
the wondering where the program launcher is hiding.

gnome-alsamixer winds up in the App-menu and it breaks out all the 
controllable functions the installed sound card/chip has. allows you a 
slide control on each function. The quad surround chip on my box has a 
ton of settings half of which I haven't a clue but it allowed me to 
record from the chip capture devise when I wanted to and had not been 
able to get it to work. Anyway it may help ya some.

Both are listed in Synaptic.
