see The FAQ from the Creative Opensource website. The skinny:
edit a file, and choose yes. Which file, I cannot remember, but it will tell you on the website if you poke around. There is other very good info, otherwise I would just find it and tell you, but you really should read around a bit, very good info there for you.

Make sure you have the emu-tools installed.

In Redhat 8.0 I believe the file emu10k1.conf in located in /usr/local/etc. Change <USE_DIGITAL_OUTPUT=no> to <USE_DIGITAL_OUTPUT=yes>.

If you want to load the emu-script on startup add these lines to /etc/modules.conf.

#Loads script on startup
post-install emu10k1 /usr/local/etc/emu-script
#Saves mixer levels
post-install emu10k1 /usr/local/etc/emu-script restore
pre-remove emu10k1 /usr/local/etc/emu-script save

Download ALSA and install it. Then read information on asoundrc at ALSA. Also there is example asoundrc scripts that comes with ALSA. I think the example scripts are located in /usr/share/alsa/pcm.

ALSA has also support for OSS programs.
