i have the same soundcard myself

type this on the commandline: /sbin/modprobe cmpci

Now your soundcard has to be working again :)

Good luck,

it is possible that you have an IRQ conflict. Try putting your soundcard on IRQ 7 or 5(if it is on 7 already).

The best way to see if your Sound card is compatible and works is by typeing in a terminal:

[Damo@linux ]# setup

this will bring up options of networking configiration and x windows configiration and soun card configiration

well I hope this helps
