Sound card(intel D915GVWB) not detected in Fedora Core 3

Hello all,
I have just installed fedora core 3 on my Desktop PC with Intel's original motherboard(Intel D915GVWB). During the firstboot the sound configuration windows didn't appear. After booting I gave the command "system-config-soundcard". it says that "No sound devices are found". After that I tried to upgrade the kernel and alsa package. I have upgarded the kernel to kernel-2.6.12-1.1378_FC3 and installed the following packages from

After that I rebooted the kernel and checked with speaker-test. it gives the following output :
[root@gamma ~]# speaker-test

speaker-test 0.0.8

Playback device is plughw:0,0
Stream parameters are 48000Hz, S16_LE, 1 channels
Using 16 octaves of pink noise
Playback open error: -2,No such file or directory
Playback open error: -2,No such file or directory
Playback open error: -2,No such file or directory

After this when I tried alsaconf it says "No legacy drivers found". can anyone help me to fix this problem. Any help would be welcomed.
Thanks in Advance
