Question SOUND Problem (ALSA and RedHat)

Hello to Everyone in the forum,

I have installed drivers, library and the utils of alsa but after the compilation of everything I still don't get any sound.
At first my sound card was not detected but now it is being detected but no sound still.

I have a P4 2.4 GHz
D865GBF with AD1985 AC'97 codec
RedHat 9.0
ALSA version is 0.9.6

Help me with this with some tips and some commands how to check the soundcard config

Did you make sure to save your settings in alsamixer after you turned the volume bars up?? Make sure you are plugging the speakers into the correct jacks on your computer, I plugged mine into the LFE jack and got no sound but when I plugged it into the Mic jack it works great.
