Intel MOBO with AC97 and RH 9

I have an Intel MOBO with 82801EB AC'97 Audio, However I cannot get it to work....

lsmod =ac97, size:5088, Used by:0, Not tainted: (unused)
# sndconfig detects Intel 82801EB AC'97 Audio

I press OK and it displays...82801EB AC'97 Audio is not supported.

No sound and no volume control.

Can anybody help please. I am new to Linux

What is the intel chip set? You need to select the sound driver based on the chip set e.g. Is it i810, i815, i845...

Intel ICH audio support
  Supports the following chipsets:

  Intel ICH 82801AA
  Intel ICH 82901AB
  Intel 440 MX
  Intel ICH2
  Intel ICH3
  SiS 7012
  NVidia nForce
  AMD 768

  These are audio drivers for integral audio in chipsets of motherboards.

  Intel's I/O Controller Hub (ICH) is used on 810/815/820/840/845/845D/850 motherboards.
  SiS 7012 is used on 645/735/745 motherboards.
If you have one of the above MOBO's then you need to select the Intel ICH (i8xx) driver.
