firstboot, redhat-config-soundcard won't run


I am running on a Fedora Core2 test1 box, but when I installed it, firstboot never ran. I didn't think much of it, logged in, and starting setting things up, such as XMMS and XINE.

Every time I boot it says it's initializing firstboot, but it never happens. This normally wouldn't be a problem, but I have 2 soundcards. The first one is the onboard A7N8X-E Deluxe soundcard, and the second a Fortissimo II. It's defaulting to the onboard soundcard, but from a previous install, I couldn't get it to work properly, so I just used the Fortissimo II. Since firstboot didn't run, I tried to execute the "Soundcard Detection" (redhat-config-soundcard), but it just hangs for a minute or two, then quits, without a window displayed.

Has anyone else had this problem? Running firstboot from the terminal shows:

firstbootWindow.firstbootWindow(xserver_pid, wm_pid, doReconfig, doDebug, lowRes, rhgb)
File "/usr/share/firstboot/firstbootWindow.py", line 131, in __init__
self.loadModules()
File "/usr/share/firstboot/firstbootWindow.py", line 345, in loadModules

File "/usr/share/firstboot/modules/soundcard_gui.py", line 55, in __init__
self.soundcardPage = soundcard.childWindow()
File "/usr/share/redhat-config-soundcard/soundcard.py", line 162, in __init__
self.primaryDeviceMenu.set_active(self.cardList.index(self.soundcardBackend.getDefaultCard()))
ValueError: list.index(x): x not in list
And redhat-config-soundcard from terminal:

File "/usr/share/redhat-config-soundcard/redhat-config-soundcard.py", line 44, in ?
app = soundcard.childWindow()

self.primaryDeviceMenu.set_active(self.cardList.index(self.soundcardBackend.getDefaultCard()))
ValueError: list.index(x): x not in list
Any ideas?

I switched over to Slackware....

MUCH better than Redhat/Fedora, I recommend you switch as well.
