Problems with Sound Blaster live in redhat 9

Ok, I am very new at this. I just installed Red Hat 9, after having problems with red hat 8. Im still trying to get this up and running, and I cant get the sound card to work. I did a search and read some of the other peoples problems, and a couple of people have this same problem with rh8, but no one seems to have a solution. When I did a soundcard detection it comes up correct, but I hear no sound when I play a test sound. After reading some of the other posts I think the problem is that I have the card outputting digital and the OS is trying to output anolog (this happened to me in win98 a long time ago). If no one has any idea how to fix this problem, does anyone know if there is a way to change the output from anolog to digital?

you need emu-tools, goto freshmeat and get this. there is a script to edit to enable digital output.

let me preface this by saying I am incredibly new to this. I downloaded emu-tools-0.9.4 and I untared it (im pretty sure) and I went into the files and found the read me file, and the first think it says to do is type "make" so I did, and I get this error

[root@dhcp-601-23861 emu-tools-0.9.4]# make
cd as10k1 && make
make[1]: Entering directory `/root/emu-tools-0.9.4/as10k1'
cc -M *.c -W -Wall > .depend
/bin/sh: line 1: cc: command not found
make[1]: *** [dep] Error 127
make[1]: Leaving directory `/root/emu-tools-0.9.4/as10k1'
make: *** [As10k1] Error 2

I hve now idea what this means, can anyone tell me how to fix it? I have gotten similar errors when I have tried similar things befor.

You don't have the GNU C compiler installed.

Ummm.... well thats pretty bad if you don't have it installed, but go looking for it on your cd... not sure what its called because im on Mandrake 9.1 right now, but it'll be what you need.
