What Linux Kernel version RH 9.0 uses ?
Is this an old PC ?(sorry for my ignorance)

In newer kernel versions, some Sound Drivers are outdated and removed! No longer supported...

Have you installed alsa utils ?
If yes, try to run alsaconf from a terminal and follow the setup instructions

Keep in touch ...

Vas!

Code:
lsmod | grep snd (post this output pls)

cat /proc/asound/cards (post this output pls)

-----rough guess you have a intel snd and only if so try

su
modprobe snd-hda-intel
and see if you have sound

But I guess it would be a wise decision to move ahead and get a newer version. RH9 lost support years ago. F10 is out as is Ubuntu Ibex.
Either of the distros should take your sound card.
