Hey Renato,
It is not just red hat that are having these issues. Linux is very grueling on all laptops. They have fixed this issue with the new source code 2.4.21 or 2.4.22. It has the core drivers for your sound card.
I have already fixed my sound issue... it is just reconfiguring my kernel which I am having trouble. This was\is my first time, so I have much to learn.
I dont know why you would want to upgrade to rh 9.0 from a working rh 8.0. But it is not hard to fix your problem you have... its just takes time... and if you ever want to have a properly working linux system you will HAVE to learn how to do this.

Thanks again. You're comment about why upgrade is interesting. I thought it was all part of the process.

I appreciate all the time you took to respond to my querries... I now have a much deeper knowledge of linux ... it shouldn't be a problem to fix any error that arrises...

Good luck in all your endeavours!
