Sound Card Driver Locations

According to the hardware compatibility chart.  My Linux distribution (Redhat 5.2) does not support my sound card (yamaha -ym5724).  Is there anywhere on the web that I could seach to see if someone has written a driver for it.  Or how I can find some information on creating drivers for Linux?

Thanks

Download kernel 2.2.13, configure and then make.

Boot your system with that new kernel ... and you should be up and running :-)

Look at www.kernelnotes.org for the kernel and a description of how to install, configure and make the kernel.
