Run the command (as root):

# lspci -v

This will list all the PCI devices in your system One of them will be the sound card:

00:1b.0 Audio device: Intel Corporation N10/ICH 7 Family High Definition Audio Controller (rev 01)
    Subsystem: Dell Device 01d2
    Flags: bus master, fast devsel, latency 0, IRQ 43
    Memory at efffc000 (64-bit, non-prefetchable) [size=16K]
    Capabilities: [50] Power Management version 2
    Capabilities: [60] MSI: Enable+ Count=1/1 Maskable- 64bit+
    Capabilities: [70] Express Root Complex Integrated Endpoint, MSI 00
    Capabilities: [100] Virtual Channel
    Capabilities: [130] Root Complex Link
    Kernel driver in use: HDA Intel

Then you can look it up here to see if it's in the supported hardware list.
