Redhat 8 is pretty old. You would be better off installing a newer release like Fedora Core 5 or 6. That would be the latest releases in the Redhat Distro clones.

Reason can be that kernel may not support for the card. It uses kernel 2.4s. Fedora uses the 2.6 kernels with alsa and lots of sound card modules with the precompiled kernels.

If new to Linux and first install then this would be a better start for you into Linux. It will save a lot of troubles using something more current.
