Wink Sound Not Working for Red Hat 8.0

Hi There,
Having problems getting the sound working on my machine.
I dual boot red hat 8.0 and windows XP

Sound works fine with XP but no sound with Red Hat 8.0.
Sound card is onbaord AC'97.

It seems to have picked it up in the sound settings but still no sound.Is there anywhere i can look for device conflicts of some sort?

Sorted this problem by going to the following link
and running the rpm.
apparently mp3 format is not supported in redhat 8.0
