Trouble with soundblaster audigy soundcard


hi there.
i'm having trouble to put my sound card in use.
i know it's there because in the fedora core 3 boot, the kudzu detected it. and when i type "lspci" as root it gives me plenty of info among these there was:

class: AUDIO
bus: PCI
detached: 0
driver: snd-ens1371
desc: "Creative Labs Ectiva EV1938"
vendorId: 1102
deviceId: 8938
subVendorId: 1102
subDeviceId: 5938
pciType: 1
pcidom: 0
pcibus: 2
pcidev: 4
pcifn: 0

now. the trouble is because it dont emit any sounds.
i tried many things and nothing worked.
maybe it doesnt have detected properly.
what should i do?

well, guys
i solved the problem this afternoon.
i accessed the http://www.opensound.com/ and installed their software.
quick and fast.
followed the info and done.
but then other problem appeared.
it wasnt starting the sound card on the boot, even i choosing the option to do so.
so i solved by addind some lines in the rc.local to turn off and after turn it on.
solved the problem.
my headche passed.
what a relief.
hope that my post can help anyone that had, have and will have this problem.
cya.
