Description of problem:
When I use the Sound Card Detection Utility provided with the linux 
installation, it show me two sound cards. The first one is the Intel 
i810 AC97 and the second one is the SBLive Emu10K. But when I try to 
play the test sound for any sound card, it displays the message that 
it is unable to load the driver for the sound card. When I press OK 
on this dialog then if SBLive card is selected, I can hear the sound 
played by the utility but if i810 AC97 is selected then no sound is 
Selecting the SBLive card as the primary device lets me use sound 
applications but still it does displays the 'unable to load driver' 
error. I dont know why.
I used RedHat Linux 9 and every thing was perfect there.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Start Sound Card Detection Utility
2.Click 'Play Test Sound' Button

Actual Results:  An error message was displayed specifying the it was 
unable to load drivers for the particular sound card

Expected Results:  Test sound should be played on the selected sound 
card without any errors

Additional info:

I have a Pentium IV 2.80C processor on an Intel 865GBF motherboard. 
It has an onboard integrated audio and I have installed another 
Creative SBLive 4.1 Channel Sound Card also.
