I have the same setup (XPS M1530 & FC9) and originally had the same problem. I ended up having to go into Volume Control, then enable (Edit -> Preferences) the Surround option, and finally unmute it. If that doesn't work, you might need to install alsa-oss-1.0.15-0.1.fc9 if you have the Sigmatel audio device (I'm pretty sure you do).
