Fedora Core 5 with Sound Blaster NX USB driver fails to sound

I am using 2.6.15-1.2054_FC5. I have a Sound Blaster NX USB sound card which won't work and an AC97 on board sound (which works fine.) When I use System\Administration\Soundcard Detection it finds the AC97 and also USB006b which I choose but it fails to play the sound. When I use alsamixer it finds SB Audigy 2 NX.
I have read the notes on what to check first and noticed that /sbin/lsusb doesn't exist in the /sbin directory. Any help much appreciated.

This is the 4th Linux I have installed on this machine in the last 2 months. All the others refused to run xServer (but didn't let me know until the full installation had happened.) This bundle of joy is brilliant enough to try to get xserver up and running before it installs itself (and it succeeded - which is pretty impressive since Windows wouldn't run with the default card drivers and has to use a dodgey beta driver.) I hope other distros will take note. This is the only way to run an OS installation program.

Talking got lsusb installed and it's found Creative Sound Blaster 2 NX

although some programs had found that already anyway.
Anyone searching through for help - Fedora Core 5 doesn't load lsusb by default. You have to call #"yum install usbutils". Still haven't got Administration\Soundcard Detection to find the card, probably needs mount command or something like it.


blaster, fails, nx, sound, usb
