lost sound and must reinstall sound card


Hello All:

I've lost sound on my box and must reinstall my sound card.
I got an error message a while back but ignored it because I was under pressure to finish something else. Well, I want my sound back.
How do I do that?
Where do I go to see where my sound card is? Somewhere in /dev?
I've got RH 7.3 w/ SoundBlaster 16.

Looking forward to relevant replies.

Do you know how you "lost" your sound in the first place? Did you upgrade your kernel, for instance? Whenever you boot into a new kernel, you must either have the sound drivers also installed for that kernel, or you must compile and install them from source.

No I don't know how I lost my sound.
As stated in post, I got an error message which regrettable I did not really look at. Then silence.
I was doing something else.
So all I have is what I posted.
I have RH 7.3 w/ kernel 2.4.18-3, out of the box so to speak.

ok. When I try lspci -v I get
"command not found".

What rpm package would that be in?
