Well i just thought i should post my success on getting sound to work since many many people have had SO MANY problems with getting sound to work on redhat. well it took time but i finally figured it out. well i reinstalled linux on day and didnt have anything plugged in except the essentials and sound worked GREAT! so i was all happy and poo and then i rebooted...and sound was gone. i wasn't a happy camper but thought o well and i just went on doing other stuff. well i wanted to get my sound to work so one day i thought about the day i reinstalled it and the sound worked w/o anything plugged in..so i went on doing that and removed all the configs for each perphial i had in there. and the sound worked...but first i had to change the out put driver to arts something something...can't remember off the top of my head. i was messing with those because when i played any mp3 the speed of the song increased incredibly and at that time there was no sound. so i got one thing done b/c i got the speed back to working...then i removed each config for each accessorie i had in my computer as i said and the sound worked so i was pretty dang happy. so from there i attached each accesssior one by one to see which one was the problem..it ended up being my stupid web cam...which is a Logitech Quick Cam so if any of you have that web cam and have redhat and can't get sound to work un plug that stupid thing and it should work...well that is my success story and good luck to everyone out there. happy hunting
