ok, I thought I'd try and help because you got no replys so I hope this helps you some ...

1. What exactly is slow ? are we talking about something like X or just general system performance ??

2. Personally I'm a slack user, and I've always followed this guide http://www.linuxquestions.org/questi...threadid=49035 when compiling new kernels, whether or not this will work as smoothly with RH I dont know :|

3. Check out http://www.alsa-project.org/alsa-doc...&module=cs46xx that should sort you out (try quick-install)
