That's wierd....The jacks could be labeled wrong, unless you have used a mic with a different OS...Try using the other jack as the mic.

First of all, congrats on getting that far!

Apparently you aren't alone in having sound coming out of the mic socket. See also

I have a Soundmax AC97 also, and use the Alsa sound system, which I think is not standard on RH/Mandrake. Everything seems to work OK.

If you can live with the problem and no-one can suggest a quick fix you might be just as well accepting it until your hardware gets better support.

If you want to look into Alsa at some stage, see:
