I don't know how to install at redhat, but i would use the sound-drivers of
I think they run better than the normal drivers.
However you have to look if they support your soundcard. There is a list
of cards beeing supportet and their chipset.
To install them search for a Howto. I would give you mine, but I use Debian and there you can do it on an other way quite more simply.
I would also think about compiling a new kernel. 2.2.x is quite old isn't it.

you would need the kernel source installed for your
current running kernel to install that conexant modem.
the instructions for installing it would be inside the
tarball if that's what you got.
