Fedora uses ALSA for sound, and I believe by default it is muted. Try this:

Type alsamixer at the command line and a mixer interface comes up. Use the 'm' key to unmute channels and arrow keys to adjust.

When you've got everything the way you want, type (as root): alsactl store

This will save the changes you just made.

Also, there are a lot of different channels, and I still don't know what all of them are for. Just play around until you like what you hear.
