What distribution did you say it is? Anyway add these lines to /etc/modules.conf or /etc/conf.modules (depends on distro and age of distro as well, see which one is your setup)
Code:
alias char-major-14 emu10k1
pre-install emu10k1 insmod soundcore
post-remove emu10k1 rmmod soundcore

Problem Reason 1:
Code:
/lib/modules/2.4.18-3/kernel/drivers/sound/emu10k1/emu10k1.o: init_modules: no such device
Hint: insmod errors can be caused by incorrect module parameters, including invalid IO or IRQ parameters.
Problem Reason 2:
Code:
http://hardware.redhat.com/hcl/?page...0&class=1#list

Statement: Tell me where Audigy is seen here?
Finally assessment:

The cause for the problem is due to the file emu10k1.o not having any compatibility toward Audigy hardware. Attempts to compile are resulted in failed debug messages verifying failed hardware request (e.g. invalid IO or IRQ parameters).

The only way to resolve this problem is to find, down load, and compile a emu10k1 related file compatible with the 2.4.18-3 kernel and initiate a insmod of that compiled file. An echo of what I just said, "Red-hat's emu10k1.o file will not resolve your problem, find another compatible file." I believe I have found a file that may resolve this problem, however... I have other issues that are causing problems prior to me providing an unbiased debug of this resolve. When I verify the situation, I will provide details.

Added statement:

Redhat 9 can run the Audigy Sound Card. If you want to work ahead of me, you may want to look into it.

The file I saw hope in turned out to be a bomb. Doesn't work. The eisest way I can offer a fix for the Audigy issue is to simply download RH9 or Mandrake 9+. Both versions have Audigy support and you won't have to go nuts trying to manually fix this yourself.

In addition, you can get a copy of RH9 for free at there websight. They concealed it good, it's alittle tricky to find, but it's there somewhere. Just download version 9. It will work. You can also try www.linuxiso.org. They have some sights for RH9 as well. It's where I got my version of RH9 and my Audigy ZS 2 works fine.

Keep in mind, there are some features of Audigy that do not work, like EAX. But if you search hard, you may be able to find an easier fix for that. Hope this helps you.

Also, make a habbit of creating a seperate partition for /home). This way, when you do new installs, you don't have to lose all your programs.
