You might need to check with your sound card company to see if that card support Red Hat 8.0 or find to update drivers for that card.

Hey jag,
        why don't you use the Alsa sound drivers for your card. Just download the latest drivers from the website:
http://www.alsa-project.org ( stable release ) and then untar, and run the ./configure file.

First click on the link ftp://ftp.alsa-project.org/pub/driver/alsa-driver-0.5.12a.tar.bz2
and download the file. It can be downloaded to a floppy too.
Then go to the home directory as root
then run the command
bunzip2 alsa-driver-0.5.12a.tar.bz2
then try tar xzvf alsa-driver-0.5.12a.tar.gz
( I don't remember the exact file name though , please check the file that is created after the bunzip2 command).
Then all the files would be unzipped to a folder alsa-0.5.12a

Better still you could go to /usr/local/alsa and do the untarring instead.
After unzipping the files, go into the folder alsa... (whatever it is ) and then run ./configure at the command prompt.
If you know what your sound card exactly is , you could try
./configure --with-cards=azt2320 , ( That was my sound card on my machine) . Please check your sound card details.
then type make
then type make install.
after that revert back. I will let you know what next...
Thanks,
Satej
