No soundcards were found

I have just installed Fedora Core 3 2.6.9-1.667.Everything goes well except the soundcard.My soundcard is a onboard soundcard,Realtek HD Audio.It works well
under WindowsXP,but the Fedora Core 3 could not find it.
I have downloaded alsa-driver-1.0.8,alsa-lib-1.0.8,alsa-oss-1.0.8,alsa-utils-1.0.8
and installed suncessfully.But after I reboot my computer,the result is also the same" No soundcards were found".
Can anybody help me ?
Thanks a lot.

Your soundcard is newer then the alsa modules that come with the default FC3 kernel (and newer then the packages you downloaded):

Or just take a shot at compiling the seperate module package against your current kernel:

Probably no reason to snag the current everything else, the drivers alone should be fine.
