doues the output of the command "dmesg" say anything about your card or sound ?
what sound card you got ?
what is the output of "lsmod"
have you made sure sound isnt muted with the programs "alsamixer" and "aumix" ?

Redhat 9 used the old sound system called OSS (open sound system)
with the introduction of the new 2.6 kernels, OSS was dropped in favor of ALSA (Advanced Linux Sound Architechture)

fedora 3 uses asla, and alsa is muted by default...

im not sure why... but if i had to guess, it would probably be to stop people blowing there heads off when they use the computer for the fist time with headphones, and not realsie how loud the speakers are..

i know iv done that before.
