Optical Soundcard issue

I have an AC'97 soundcard, and have searched the forum for a solution, but i feel that i need further assistance!

The soundcard is onboard a Gigabyte 8penxp mobo, but i have an optical output (which works fine in winXP) but does not seem to work with fedora core 4

Any help/advice will be greatly apreciated

Okay, i was wondering if simply slotting in an older pci soundcard would rectify the problem? but lets call that plan "B" =D

maybe a bit more info will help:
