Well, the good news is the "make install" seemed to work with ALSA. With pengaol it didn't work, but luckily a tutorial had a listing of each of the files so I hunted them down. Using the command from the ALSA tutorial to load the ALSA stuff into the kernel didn't work however because it couldn't find the files. I'm surprised that it didn't though since I THINK I have the RPMs installed. I did actually make a post though about some RPM troubles at http://www.linuxquestions.org/questi...threadid=57642
I thought it was more of a general question so I posted it there. I'm thinking about just downloading that Beta Kernel 2.5.86 I checked the changelog and it seems to have support for my sound card. Hmm, well hopefully I will get some sound working at some point. Take care and thank you for all of your help.
