Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

I assume the problem is with "02:0a.0 Multimedia controller: Motorola: Unknown device 3410"
I am running RedHat9, 2.4.20-19.9
I've googled this quite extensively, which is what led me to here. I have an echoaudio Mia pro audio card, and I keep getting "error while initializing the sound driver. device /dev/dsp can't be opened (no such device)". There's a driver for this card and a how-to at the URL firstname.lastname@example.org/ea.html. I've gone through the full ALSA driver installation procedure listed there, and installed alsa-lib and alsa-utils with no error. In fact, ALSA's mixer runs, but of course I get no output due to the badly configured soundcard.
sndconfig doesn't help because this soundcard isn't listed. I have verified that /lib/modules/2.4.20-19.9/kernel/sound/pci/echoaudio exists, so doesn't that verify the module's properly installed?
Any suggestions how i can make RH9 recognize this card? I spoke to the manufacturer, who pointed me to the ALSA page mentioned above, but that's all they knew.
after "modprobe snd-echoaudio" dmesg reads "Card registered: Mia rev.0 (DSP56361) at 0xe6000000 irq 5" and "cat /proc/interrupts" verifies Echoaudio on IRQ 5, but redhat-config-soundcard still detects nothing and sound doesn't work.
"cat /proc/bus/pci/devices" reveals the device "Echoaudio", but it does not appear in /etc/modules.conf, so I tried adding the line "sound-slot-0 Echoaudio", but that had no effect.
in /dev, the perms to audio* and relevant devices have been set to 666.
