I had difficulties with audio volume on my T22 in linux, even when the
sound in windows was plenty loud enough. It turned out that there was a
global software 'volume control' that was about halfway up by default.
If you're using gnome, try adding a 'volume control' applet (under
multimedia) or such like to the gnome panel, and have a look at the level.
