Hi there:

Thanks for your quick reply.

Ummm, I am running FC2 on a laptop and my modprobe.conf looks like this:

alias eth0 e100
alias snd-card-0 snd-ali5451
install snd-ali5451 /sbin/modprobe --ignore-install snd-ali5451 &&
/usr/sbin/alsactl restore >/dev/null 2>&1 || :
remove snd-ali5451 { /usr/sbin/alsactl store >/dev/null 2>&1 || : ; };
/sbin/modprobe -r --ignore-remove snd-ali5451
alias usb-controller ohci-hcd

I am not quite sure what they means. Would I need to modify this?

Thanks again
