Unhappy Sound Crackly in redhat 8.0


i have installed redhat 8 and the sound works out the box
but...
it sounds crackly on most music i play.
I have a creative soundblaster live 1024
it sounds as tho my speakers are duff but it still sounds ok in windows. I am sure it sounded fine in slackware but that was a long time ago and i cant garantee that was indeed the case.
Anyway i will really really apprieciate any help because i love my music and its driving my round the twist.

ps.Sorry if this has been posted a million times.,

Thanks
A newbie

Try turning the volume down to 80% in xmms or whatever, then just turning out the speaker volume to compensate.

This is a known problem with some OSS drivers afaik.
