To see if the sound drivers are loaded properly in Red Hat, there is a utility called " sndconfig " that in most cases will detect your sound card and help set up all of the necessary configuration files to load the appropriate sound drivers for your card.

# sndconfig
The other way is to simply check if sound modules are loaded by the kernel.

# grep snd /proc/modules
You also have to check if you have an existing sound-card available...

# cat /proc/asound/cards
A working sound-card will produce output that looks something like this:

ionrivera@it-024138:~$ cat /proc/asound/cards
0 [Intel ]: HDA-Intel - HDA Intel
HDA Intel at 0xfea78000 irq 16

Hope that helps! ;-)
