Audio Problems Via VT8233/A/8335/8337 AC97

Kernel-2.6.7 and 2.6.6 , Sound module snd-via82xx., Two different Athlon boxes.
If I run the sound test in the Soundcard Detection menu I get a static out of one
box and no sound out of the other box.
I can play music cd's, sound's great, but if I try to play Flash-plugin, sound through
Mozilla then I get the static and no sound out of the two boxes.
I have submitted a Bug #128941 to Fedora, please contrib, if you have problems.
My /etc/modprobe.conf file is below.

alias snd-card-0 snd-via82xx
install snd-via82xx /sbin/modprobe --ignore-install snd-via82xx && /usr/sbin/alsactl restore >/dev/null 2>&1 ||:
remove snd-via82xx { /usr/sbin/alsactl store >/dev/null 2>&1 || : ; }; /sbin/modprobe -r --ignore-remove snd-via82xx

Google search for the alsa project. Get the lastest drivers.

Remove the vt82xx kernel driver from your kernel, though KEEP sound support.

once you have downloaded and unpacked the alsa drivers run the configuration script from within the alsa directory, but ONLY configure for your card so it will look _something_ like this (i dont remember off the top of my head the exact syntax so type ./configure --help to find out).

./configure --with-card=vx82xx
make;make install

easy. problems, come back.
