I had the same problem. Solution found:

Install a new kernel AND Alsa 1.0.8 and then you should type alsaconf to install the driver.

I was unable to correcty install a new alsa so I just switched to a distro that already comes with alsa 1.0.8 and a new kernel: Mandrake 10.2

It detected the audio driver upon installation and no more problems!!!

Felipe,
I'm glad to hear that Mandrake 10.2 worked for you. ALSA 1.0.8 has been getting much more Intel-motherboard codec support lately. ALSA 1.0.9 has some quality bugs fixed and new codec support. It should release soon. We're seeing that Red Hat is the farthest behind in terms of support for Intel motherboards. Novell/SuSE is pushing hard to be completed out of the box. The Chinese distros like CS2C and Red Flag are also working nicely out of the box.

OK
I have a new laptop HP Pavilion dv4170 and i have the intel gma 900 graphics card, and all live CD's seem to run fine, (except Ubuntu) but, recently i install suse 9.3 nicely no problems or anytihng, but when i try to load it up get this weird looking screen with lines, and it slowly fades to black....
i've tryed everything, including loading sax, which jsut gets me the same thing, also going threw yast to get to sax, which does the same thing. I also tryed copying the Xorg.conf from a live CD to get the same settings, but nothing seems to want to work. Any help would be greatly appreciated...

upgrading the bios verson is sometimes dangerous for the non technical person , so it is better to upgrade your s/w verson. Intel 915 with SATA/NIC/Sound/VGA will be supported with RHLW V.4.0, thats what i can suggest u all
thanks

I Solved this problem by my self. i Just read the Intel documentation. this graphical chipset i915GM has suppport for liux - yes BUT onyl for various kernel - old kernel with Distros != Slackware & Debian.

This driver was for some newbie distros like SuSe & Mandrake and TurboLinux. I don't know much about TurboLinux but whatever

915 Mother boards are not supported by default in Mandriva 2008 ???. But this board has been around for a while !! I am sure Fedora would support it.
