[PlanetCCRMA] Soundcard problems

Hi All,

I'm new to CCRMA but not new to Linux. I am running Redhat 8.0 with a
Sounblaster AWE64 card. I have followed the install instructions all the
way up to the sound card configuration part. The new kernel boots up
fine. When I run alsaconf it seems to work (although there are some
error messages that briefly flash on the screen). However, I don't hear
any of the test sounds. My /etc/modules.conf file has been modified. If
I try to manually start alsa sound it says it is already running. If I
try to stop it I get a long list of devices that are busy (corresponding
to the list of drivers in modules.conf).

Bottom line is that I have no sound. When I look at the list of drivers
being called in /etc/modules.conf, I can't find any of those drivers in
/lib/modules/ . Do I need to go get these from some place?

Thanks for your help.
