problem with soundcard detection (Red Hat Fedora Core 5 on Thinkpad T41)

I'm running Red Hat Fedora Core 5 on a Thinkpad T41. When I first installed it, sound worked out of the box. Recently, it stopped working, and now when I run the soundcard detection utility, it is unable to detect the soundcard. I'm not sure what has changed. I've run various updates with yum, and installed a few things from livna. Any suggestions for fixes?

Here are the filter reults of running lsmod:

$ /sbin/lsmod | egrep 'snd'

possible solution?

Hi Glip
have a look-see at this post that I put up the other day.
This may help you with your issue.
True, our issues were slightly different, mine was that my soundcard was able to be detected, but no sound - yours is no detection, and no sound. Have a look, though, and see if this helps you.
