fc5-soundcard problem


i'm running a fc5 on a amd sempron laptop.i'm new to linux.installed fc5.installation went fine..but when i tried to check my soundcards,i got this:

"automatic detection of soundcard did not work.audio will not be available on the system.
you can inspect /root/scsound.log and file a new bug at bugzilla.redhat.com"

earlier i was running xp on my comp and had installed the sound drivers then..i installed this fc5 overwriting xp.could that have caused some problem?
whatto do?

youll need to either figure out what type of sound card you have, or give us an exact model number. your information is too vague.

this is how it looks when i tried further:

the following audio device was detected
vendor:ATI
model:technologies incIXPSB400 AC'97 audio controller
module:snd-atiixp

default PCM device:
ATIIXP AC97[ATI IXP AC97]

thats it.

Open a terminal, and, as root, type:

lsmod

Look for the module noted in your last post (snd-atiixp). If you do not see it listed, then type:

modprobe snd-atiixp

This will load the sound module you need.

Hope this helps,

Bob
