Bad Audio Sound


I'm running Redhat 2.6.11-1.1369_FC4 dual boot with XP.

I'm having problems with the audio sound on redhat. Whenever I play a song from the internet or my own songs, I hear "static and bubbley sounds" everywhere. But on XP, the song plays normal as usual.

I also want to point out. When I play my own songs from the cd, there's not much static but if you turn it up a few notches you can hear it. But when I play "Online" songs like samples, I hear A LOT of static.

Am I missing some drivers or something? What can I do to fix the audio sound in redhat?

I'm not sure where to check for my drivers but I think I have everything. I thought it was my soundcard that was doing all of this, but I don't think it's that. I checked my soundcard and it checked out ok. You suggest I should install "Alsa"

Will "Alsa" fix my static problem? If you ask me, I don't think it will. Thanks for the suggestion tho.....

Is there anything that I can do to fix this? If so then please tell me because I'm running out of ideas.

Ok why not, let's try it. I'm currently downloading the latest driver which is 1.0.11.

I'll be back with more questions.
