Description of problem:
Sound card detection doesn't work in first try. I have:

82801DB AC'97 Audio Controller

I've installed Fedora Core 2 test2 twice, and this happened both
times... Fully reproducible for me.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Do fresh install
2. When the test button comes within the installer, press "Test"
3. No sound
4. When it asks if you heard it, press "no"
5. Test it again.
6. This time there is sound
7. Every other time there is sound.

Actual Results:  Sound doesn't work the first time you press Test.

Expected Results:  Sound should work every time.
