My RedHat 6.1 install didn't pick up my legacy-type SB16 sound card (has IRQ settings by jumpers).  How do I manually install it?

install a package called sndconfig,
run it as root /usr/sbin/sndconfig,
choose sb16, choose proper irq and stuff, it will set up /etc/conf.modules for you and bring up the sound.

For sndconfig to work, you need to have sound support in your kernel and 100%soundblaster support as a module.

Thanks!!  I think I need a book on RedHat Linux.  It was simple, once I knew where to look. Thanks, again!
