Soundcard detection problem HELP!

hello everyone,

My sound card is getting detected but the problem is my sound card is from via chipset VT8235 AC97 Audio Contoller but linux detects it as VT8233 AC97 Audio Controller ,will this be the reason why i can't hear any sound.i am running on redhat linux 9.0..if that is the reason how can i manually change the sound card driver?if not what else might be the problem?

Any help will be deeply appreciated,and please try to be a little elobrate 'cause i am a total newbie to linux.

Thank you all.

Just out of curiosity... can you adjust the volume at all? Also, what happens if you login as root? Can you hear sounds then?

I have the same codec and you have to unmute one of the VIA DXS channels to make the sound come out. Some mixers don't display this setting, but alsamixer will.
