Sound not configured properly or non-functional after install

Did a fresh installation (not upgrade) of Fedora Core 2 test3 on an
Intel D845PEBT2 mobo. This mobo had previously run RH9. When it ran
RH9, the only issue with the sound driver was that the sound was
coming out of the wrong jack (had to plug the speakers into the rear
With FC2-test3, we don't even get that far. Here is what the

What's your /etc/modprobe.conf and /etc/modprobe.conf.dist look like?
Created attachment 99902 [details]
/etc/modprobe.conf.dist from FC2T3 installation
Created attachment 99903 [details]
/etc/modprobe.conf from fresh FC2T3 installation
Did you do a network install?
I insalled from the FC2T3 DVD image that I got from the bittorent.
This is fixed in fc3test3. Sound is working properly, and coming out
of the correct jack as well. Thank you.
