as I know RH9.0 uses 2.4.20 kernel, but I think it doesn't support AC97 module by default, but you can check this:
modprobe i810_audio
if everything is ok, it means, you have to put 'modprobe i810_audio' somewhere startup with system( I don't where it is in RH)
else {
make dep;
make clean;
make bzImage;
make modules;
make modules_install;
}
I mean you can recompile kernel;
I have AC97 sound I have recompiled kernel and now everything works fine

You can download the xmms MP3 patch from www.xmms.org.

If you want to play movies, you'll need something like xine or mplayer. You can get dedicated avi players, but these players will also play DVDs, etc.

You can get Windows codecs from their sites as well.

have you tried modprobe i810_audio?
You see zZeEkiEeZz if you are a newbie, so I think kernel recompiling will be a bit hard for ya. Maybe you can specify absolutely all you hardware in laptop ..... maybe I will compile a kernel for ya
