That is very strange. Planet CCRMA does not include binary drivers for
kernel 2.4.18 so I don't see how alsa could be working under 2.4.18. You
must have rebuilt and alsa-driver source rpm and installed the kernel
modules, right?

I assume that alsamixer (or gamix) shows the audio channels unmuted and
with non-zero volume in both cases?
