Fedora Core 4 on Dell Inspiron 8600 Sound Doesn't Work

I've been doing so well, after using Mandrake for many years, I decided to make the jump to Fedora core on my Dell Inspiron 8600 as I'd never managed to get the wireless network working. I've now got that working, but I can't get any sound out of the laptop when running Fedora core 4.

It is reporting that i have and Intel 82801DB-ICH4 (Alsa Mixer) and that it is all configured and working properly with the snd-intel8x0 module, the volume is set high and it isn't muted, but there is just no sound at all.

Can anyone PLEASE help!

Oh shit, You said it was not muted. Perhaps you need to compile your kernel with OSS emulation. I had to do that you know.
