Sound problem in Red Hat 9

When I'm trying to open Volume control i get this error message:

Volume control is unable to run correctly.

Unable to open audio device '/dev/mixer'.
Please check that you have permissions to open '/dev/mixer'
and that you have sound support in your kernel.

I have tried chmod 666 /dev/mixer but it doesn't help!

PLEASE help!
