cannot detect audiophile 2496 using redhat 9

Hello. I am a newbie. I installed redhat 8 and just installed redhat 9 in the hope it would help. I have an SIS sound card that came with my Sony Vaio and a PCI audiophile 2496. I downloaded the Alsa driver but honestly, I need to start from gound zero. soundconfig only recognizes the SIS card. My distro is 2.4.20-8. And lspci is:

00:00.0 Host bridge: Silicon Integrated Systems [SiS] 730 Host (rev 02)
00:00.1 IDE interface: Silicon Integrated Systems [SiS] 5513 [IDE] (rev d0)

01:00.0 VGA compatible controller: Silicon Integrated Systems [SiS] SiS630 GUI A
ccelerator+3D (rev 31)

I see it in there but don't know where to begin. Please help. I am getting close to giving in and going back to Windows.

don't have a lot of time, but hope this helps.
i've never had my card autodetected by any distro (i have an audiophile as well). You'll probably have to play around w/ your alsa config files. You need to be using the ice1712 chipset (check the alsa web site for details on installing it, it shouldn't be hard) maybe even try a modprobe ice1712 and see what happens=). assuming that works, use envy24control (in alsa-tools?) as a mixer. good luck!
