No sound from C Media sound card CM8738 with Redhat Linux 9

I have recently installed Redhat Linux 9 on my desktop(p3 800MHz & 128MB), the system is not dual boot. The system has an onboard C Media soundcard with CM8738 chip. The sound card is detected by the system as it was seen in the Hardware Browser >> sound card. it is displayed as "C Media" is the text area and "Driver: cmpci" below that. When ever I do the Auto Sound card detection and press the "Play Test Sound" button, the system hangs, i have to do a system reboot to continue my work. The same is true when I try playing songs in xmms (i had installed xmms-mp3 plugin). Plese Help.
