You said Sound Blaster 16, right?  This is an old ISA card, not a PCI card, right?
If it is ISA, try running /sbin/pnpdump and see if it find it.  If it does, you'll need to configure it in /etc/isapnp.conf.   (at this point, man pages are your friends)
If it really is PCI, then Steve's suggestions with dmesg/lspci are the way to go.
