Sorry, my fault, I need to add new instructions for FC2. FC2 does not
use OSS at all so there are no modules to remove. If the initial install
of FC2 recognized your soundcard you don't need to run alsaconf either.

Hmm, except for this one, I seem to remember this is the usb audio
module (non-alsa), do you have a usb soundcard?

snd_mixer_oss is the alsa module for oss emulation so it is fine...

kernel 2.6.x uses modprobe.conf instead
