Question redhat 9 no sound with on board i810 sound

well, let's see. I had sound yesterday when i installed redhat 9. (moving up in the world, used to run slackware, YAY). Then, i suspect I was logged in as root and my stupid friend was messing with settings. There is no sound now, I only get an error when i try to play a sound file(any) and then it will tell me that it has changed the output device to null. Here is some infor that may help you.

Intel motherboard. 82801 chipset. onboard sound. running Redhat 9.0. Here's some configuration iformation:

Intel 810 + AC97 Audio, version 0.24, 17:59:48 Mar 13 2003
PCI: Found IRQ 10 for device 00:1f.5
PCI: Setting latency timer of device 00:1f.5 to 64
i810: Intel ICH2 found at IO 0xe100 and 0xe000, MEM 0x0000 and 0x0000, IRQ 10
i810_audio: Audio Controller supports 6 channels.
i810_audio: Defaulting to base 2 channel mode.
i810_audio: Resetting connection 0
ac97_codec: AC97 Audio codec, id: ADS72 (Analog Devices AD1881A)
i810_audio: AC'97 codec 0 Unable to map surround DAC's (or DAC's not present), total channels = 2
usbaudio: dma timed out??

alias parport_lowlevel parport_pc
alias eth0 8139too
alias usb-controller usb-uhci
alias ieee1394-controller ohci1394
alias sound-slot-0 i810_audio
post-install sound-slot-0 /bin/aumix-minimal -f /etc/.aumixrc -L >/dev/null 2>&1 || :
pre-remove sound-slot-0 /bin/aumix-minimal -f /etc/.aumixrc -S >/dev/null 2>&1 || :

Bear with me here, I know it should point to dev/dsp. Only problem is that when i change it to dev/dsp, it changes it back.

P.S. modules.conf is owned by root. this is ok right? I won't have permissions problems playing sound as another user. Also, please email me if you know right off the bat what the problem is. I am doing this for a friends comp and he is losing faith in LINUX!!!!!!!

First thing to try: Launch sndconfig as root. It's Redhat's own application to configure sound. If it was working before it will hopefully not be a very big task to make it work again.
