[ubuntu] laptop sound not working

I just put Ubuntu 10.04 on my wifes's laptop and everything went smooth except the sound isnt working. I went to help.ubuntu.com/community/SoundTroubleshooting and got to

#5. Do you have the sound modules installed?

this is what i got...

:~$ find /lib/modules/`uname -r` | grep snd

find: '/lib/modules/uname -r': No such file or directory

so i went on with

:~$ sudo apt-get install linux-resricted-modules- 'uname -r' linux-generic

and i got back this.

Reading package lists... Done

Building dependency tree

Reading state information... Done

E: Couldn't find package linux-resricted-modules

I look for answers what i should do next but i could find anything.

any help would be great

thank you
