Hi and welcome to LQ.

Fedora 5 is no longer supported by the Fedora Project and reached its end of life some time ago. I suggest you try Fedora 8 or Fedora 9.

In any case, you should check alsamixer. You have to run it in a terminal window. If it starts, then most probably your sound device and the driver are ok, just check that pcm and master are not zeroed nor muted.
