I think the driver you need to un comment in modules.conf is via82cxxx_audio

Could you please show us the output of /sbin/lspci -v? This will confirm your chipset.

OK. It looks like SiS is a little tight-arsed about releaseing product specs so there aren't many drivers around.

Try jarib's suggestion first as if it works it'll be the easiest way to do it. ALSA will only support you if you have the 735 chipset. The output of lspci didn't tell me whether you have that. I suppose you can try it and see. I know you said you tried ALSA already but did you use this command: ./configure --with-cards=trident --with-sequencer=yes. You have to specify which card you want to use during the ./configure stage. I'm not sure whether you did this. It could be why it didn't work.

You also said

all fine no errors then "/snddevices" all seemed to be fine no errors now i had to edit /etc/modules.conf but i didnt know what to write there so i skiped it
Firstly, you shouldn't need to run the "snddevices" script anymore. That's for old versions (0.94 and earlier). Secondly, it tells you in the instructions what to put in modules.conf.

Code:
# ALSA portion
alias char-major-116 snd
alias snd-card-0 snd-trident
# module options should go here

# OSS/Free portion
alias char-major-14 soundcore
alias sound-slot-0 snd-card-0

# card #1
alias sound-service-0-0 snd-mixer-oss
alias sound-service-0-1 snd-seq-oss
alias sound-service-0-3 snd-pcm-oss
alias sound-service-0-8 snd-seq-oss
alias sound-service-0-12 snd-pcm-oss

If you goto asus site - you found many interesting detail about this mb.
For example, type of sound chip ADI1980.

You have to run alsamixer. Unmute and turn up all the channels.

That's too simple. No permissions to change or config files to edit. Thats too funny

I am a 2 week -old newbie to Linux and have a couple of minor glitches that no amount of RTFM has helped...I can not get my CD's to play on Redhat 9. I've installed RH 9 on two separate PC's and both exhibit the same 'no sound' issue on trying to playing a CD. Both PC's will play sounds (the 3-chord test) when the sound card 'test sound' is selected, and both will play other sounds (.wav, etc) - just no CD music. I have installed programs on both units from the CD-Rom, so believe it to be working properly. Also the cable from the CD-Rom is plugged into the sound card (have moved the cable to various female plug-ins on the sound card, but none return a music CD).

The sound card is an 'Ensoniq -es1370'.

results of '/sbin/lspci -v':
