[PlanetCCRMA] No audio with FC4 kernel upgrade

I'm trying to install Planet CCRMA on my FC4 installation, but I've 
gotten only so far as the kernel upgrade, and the sound driver doesn't work.

Here's what I get when I boot into the new kernel (ver. no. in error 
message below) and try to restart alsasound:

[root@localhost /]# /etc/init.d/alsasound restart
Shutting down sound driver                                 [  OK  ]
Starting sound driver snd-via82xx FATAL: Error inserting snd_via82xx 
Unknown symbol in module, or unknown parameter (see dmesg)

I see a similar message during the boot-up sequence, but it flashes by 
so quickly I haven't been able to write down the exact message.  It's 
something to the same effect, though.

Also, KDE complains when I start it up, saying it can't initialize the 
sound driver, but I'm guessing that's a secondary problem that will go 
away if I fix the main problem with the sound module.

What should be my next step in trouble-shooting?
