you reinstalled teh entire operating system just because a program wasn't found?

try whereis sndconfig to see if it's simply not on your search path. if that gives nothing back, instal the correct rpm from your installation cds, or download the same file at

ftp://ftp.rpmfind.net/linux/redhat/7...4.8-1.i386.rpm

I see that you are new to linux and are having to go through the same process that I went through not long ago. You are in the right place to get your questions answered. Keep on keepin on.

First of all you MUST be root to give this commando


Secondly try to find where the sndconfig file is

find / -name sndconfig -print

Try to type the hole path for instance like /usr/sbin/sndconfig

This is not the right place but you'll get the picture


Good Luck
