Just two questions one on optical sound the other on Kate.

First off let me say thanks for all the help in the past. But now to my quesitons....

1) I'm using some kind of Yamaha sound card I'll look it up after I post this, but Linux detects Silicon Intergrated Systems [SIS] models number SiS7012 PCI Audio Accelarator, now my sounds functions fine out of the regular sound out jack with my headphones connected. But my Logitech stereo is connected to the computer via Optical. Anyone know if RedHat 9 will support optical and will it depend on which Yamaha card I have?

2) I've been using the KDE program Kate when doing my shell scripting and some basic C programming, and I really like the highlight mode feature but I wasn't able to keep to automatically assume the C highlight mode even after modifying my prefences and hitting apply then ok. Any ideas how to get the C highlight mode to be the default highlight mode?

I know I asked these same two before but there is so much traffic on here and I didn't get any responses I figured maybe posting them when people were up and checking the boards might get me better results. Sorry to anyone who has already read my post, any help anyone can give is much appreciated.

In response to the Kate question you posed, yes that is exactly what I do and it works for the current project I just can seem to find a way to make Kate default to that highlight mode setting. And thanks for the link regard the sound I still have found any way of getting optical support out of my current card so I'll continue the journey. Thanks for the help,
