=o does fedora use alsa or is it just 'one of those redhat things'? Thinking back way back to the last time I used it, there's always at least been a redhat-specific GUI tool for soundcard autodetection, perhaps you will find it in your DE's menu under 'Configuration' or 'Settings' or another appropriately named submenu (assuming you chose to install the administration package group, iirc). To the best of my recollection, fedora still uses kudzu, have you tried running it (as root) from the cli? If it doesn't detect anything, I(or someone quicker)'ll look up the module name itself.
