Sound Help ac97

Hello Group. Brand New Linux Guy Here!
I checked this entire board and still my sound does not work. I tried to go to the mixer and check to make sure the sound is up, but the mixer tells me I have no permission, and device not found.
I've gone to ALSA and downloaded the approapriate drivers.alsa-driver-0.9.0rc5

I've ./config'd
I've make install
I've .snddevices..
I've tried it all, and still my sound does not work.....

I've sndconfig and the sound is found, but then I get errors when MODPROB,, I get errors, "failed, etc..etc.

My setup:
Albatron kx400 with onboard ac97 sound.
AMD xp2000
Redhat 8.0.

Please please help a newbie!!

First, what is your distribution?
Second, please post here the exact modprobe error msg.

You probably don't load the right module (read "drivers" for your sound card)

And also could you post a link to the page which describes in detail how to set things up for you card (the one that told you about ./snddevices and such).
