Creative 5.1 sound card&speakers fedoa5 Alsa setup help needed

I am running fedora5 with a creative sound blaster 5.1 card and the 5.1 speakers.
I am trying to set Alsa. When I run this command here is the errors I receive:
Setting 5.1 Channel volumes...
amixer: Unable to find simple control 'Surround Jack Mode',0

amixer: Unable to find simple control 'Mic select',0

amixer: Unable to find simple control 'Channel mode',0

amixer: Unable to find simple control 'Center/LFE Down mix',0

amixer: Unable to find simple control 'Duplicate Front',0

I have sound on the 5 speakers, but LFE doesnt make any sound when running this:
#speaker-test -c 6 -D surround51

speaker-test 1.0.11rc2

Playback device is surround51
Stream parameters are 48000Hz, S16_LE, 6 channels
Using 16 octaves of pink noise
Rate set to 48000Hz (requested 48000Hz)
Buffer size range from 64 to 16384
Period size range from 16 to 16384
Periods = 4
Buffer time size 2525
To choose buffer_size = 16384
To choose period_size = 4096
was set period_size = 4096
was set buffer_size = 16384
0 - Front Left
4 - Center
1 - Front Right
3 - Rear Right
2 - Rear Left
5 - LFE

Also I think the right side channel isnt working correctly yet, like when I use XMMS or online radio stations.
Any help or ideas would be great thanks
