Looks like your sound drivers are all loaded. Do you have any sound in Linux, but only issues in VLC, i.e. in wine? Why use wine at all? VLC is available for RHEL5 in the rpmforge repository. See this link for more info:

If you're a newbie in Linux, like you say, I'd not think you're paying for a RHEL subscription, hence you won't be able to keep your system current. If that's correct, I suggest you switch to CentOS:
