support for Yamaha YMF-724F sound card

I ran sndconfig to get support for my sound card and
after probing it reported that I have a Yamaha YMF-724F
card which is not supported by Linux-mandrake 6.1 (Redhat 6.0 compatible). How can I get it to just provide just basic Soundblaster compatibility ?

I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.
