That section will install the driver for your sound card when sound
services are requested. When it loads the driver it will load your mixer
settings from /etc/.aumixrc. If your driver defaults to muted, or the
/etc/.aumixrc file starts out with zeros for sound levels you won't get
any sound. Once your system is up and running, use the tools to set
volume levels and have them saved.
There is also a similar line which gets run when the sound module is
removed which saves the current volume levels back into /etc/.aumixrc.
