Sorry. By googling I see that I was wrong. Apparently it's the command 

alsaconf store

that takes the configuration info and writes it to asound.sate. Try
that please. sorry for the mistake.

Do you happen to have any kernel source code trees under /usr/src? I
know that sometimes on my Gentoo laptop things get confusing for
emerge if the /usr/src/linux link points to the wrong kernel. However
I've not seen that problem with Fedora.

I believe that you can give the whole path when you do a modprobe buy
hand, so instead of

modprobe snd-intel8x0

you could try 

modprobe /lib/modules/2.6.10-0.6.rdt.rhfc3.ccrma/updates/pci/snd-intel8x0

(might need the .ko. Not sure...)

I'm pretty stumped by the problems you're having. I had trouble when I
tried to set up FC3 on my wife's machine 6 weeks ago but they were
hardware problems. I never got as far as working with the Planet
stuff. I eventually gave and used FC2 since our other machines here
use that release also.

I fear I'm not helping you much anymore. I hope the alsaconf store
things fixes up the asound.state issue and it all gets well after

good luck,
