Help installing M-Audio Audiophile USB on FC5

Hi. I've bougth this external sound card for my Win PC. I've choosen this only under ca$h problems... Now, I want to install it on my laptop with Fedora Core 5. I now usb devices are not the best for Linux... but, I found some links that want to give me an hand. For example:

I read that ( ):

ALSA 0.9.6 update
- added __setup() to all midlevel modules
- sequencer protocol 1.0.1
- added timestamping flags for ports
- OSS PCM emulation
- fixed write() behaviour
- added two new options no-silence & whole-frag
- a try to fix OOPSes caused in the rate plugin
- emu10k1 driver
- more support for Audigy/Audigy2 EX
- fixed soundfont locking
- sb16 driver
- fixed fm_res handling (and proc OOPS)
- via82xx driver
- fixed revision check for 8233A
- usbaudio driver
- added a workaround for M-Audio Audiophile USB

So, I think I've to use this ALSA... but sincerly I don't know what is it, how to use or configure it etc In Linux configuring hardware is (luckily, I presume) so different from Windows.... So, can you help me? A little hand (such telling me what files are involved in the working of sound card and how, or where I can learn about it!) is a big present

Thank you!

PS Sorry for any newbiely done mistake
