Have audio with crackle sounds

I have installed Fedora Redhat Core 3 (32 bit version) and have dual boot on my computer. It works great except one thing - serious sound disturbance! I have the nVIDIA nForce 3 main board with onboard sound card. I have sound but always in the back I can hear a crackle sound al the time. How can I fix this? Download a new driver? Update? I have NO problems like this in Windows, then

Hardware specification:

Shuttle xpc
AMD Athlon 64 3200+
1 GB ram
Plextor DVD-R
nVIDIA nForce 3

The crackling background sound is due to interference with other pci cards (graphics card). Try search google for your answer. See your Xorg conf file settings.
