soundcard problem and other questions (Fedora)

I have just succesfully installed Fedora Core and i have a few questions

my soundcard is not recognized, i have a SIS650 chipset with integrated soundcard, a SIS 7012 "avance logic ac97". Unfortunately it does not work, where could i find a driver for my soundcard en how can i install this driver?

My screenresolution is 1024x768. The fonts and the icons look very big to me
is there a way that i could make everything a little bit smaller?
im afraid that i can't get into a higher resolution.

I have my mp3 files stored on my second NTFS partition, how could i move these
files to my linux partition? is there a way to access NTFS of FAT32 partitions in Linux?
burning all these files to cd will take quite some time.

Is there a way to increase performance? It takes quite some time to load apps.
my notebook is a P4 1,7 Ghz, 512mb ram, 40gb HD.
Are there any options i could disable or other things i could or configure
to make it a little bit faster?

If i download apps, do i have to download certain redhat or 'fedora core' packages?
Why is this? and will apps made for GNOME work under KDE and vice versa?

what is a good place to look for free linux apps?
Can you download Wine for free?

If i want to use the wireless network on school i have to login with certain certifcates, these certificates can be installed on windows but it is a win32 app that installs them so it wont work under linux. Though i have to login with my username and pass and i have to work with these certificates.
is there a way, some kind of app that i could use to login to the wireless network at school? the program is called w2secure and it is from Alfa & Ariss. it is a TTLS Client.

more info is here: (i cannot post an url due to the forum policies.)
