No sound in Fedora

I'm running a dist. based on Fedora 6 and I can't the sound to work. Help much appreciated. Some output:

One thing you might want to try is to open the grapical sound manager and see that the volume is set all the way down or muted. Perhaps enter "alsamixer" at the command prompt or search around on the desktop for the volume control.

The KDE sound system volume is set to 100%. PCM and master volume are set to 75% in Alsamixer. There is a service called Audio Configuration which states the sound card is detected and that the volume isn't muted. But still no sound.
