redhat 9 asusp4pe no sound- how to fix?

I just installed RH9 (my first Linux install). I have an ASUS P4PE motherboard. After tussling with my on-board NIC, it is now time to configure sound.

When I run the sound card detection, I get:

Vendor: Intel Corp
Model: 82801DB AC'97 Audio
Module: disabled

Then I am told that the " disabled driver could not be loaded. This sound card may not be compatible with Linux."

What is going on? Is there a way to enable the sound card? Do I need a new RPM file to install a new driver? The ASUS web site is not very helpful.

Please do not post the same thread in more than one forum. Picking the most relevant forum and posting it once there makes it easier for other members to help you and keeps the discussion all in one place.

Your post fits better the Linux-Hardware forum (, so I'm closing this one.
