I think I will not go this way right now. Logically, the Redhat kernel
is able to do this right, on this chipset and others. It's only this
kernel having trouble, so there must be some difference that we don't
know about yet. I'll search for that rather than go too much further
with this non-standard way of dealing with the disks.

Assuming that the configuration RH supplied with the distribution really
does represent how the kernel was configured.

I was hopeful,but it didn't change anything.I have built kernels before,
just not with alsa support and all. Maybe I'll try that later this week
if I can't find any other solutions.

Thanks for helping me though. I do appreciate it.
