When I used sndconfig to set up sound on my Dell Latitude, a
warnings came up that the drivers for the (correctly)
detected sound card cause Dell Inspiron laptops to hang, and
asked me if I wanted to continue anyway.
The yes button from that screen did not do anything. No
canceled the operation.
(I added the alias to conf.modules myself, and sound works
$ uname -a
Linux dhcp53.va.tislabs.com 2.2.12-20 #1 Mon Sep 27 10:40:35
EDT 1999 i686 unknown
$ cat /etc/redhat-release
Red Hat Linux release 6.1 (Cartman)
$ rpm -q sndconfig
This is fixed in the latest sndconfig in Raw Hide.

sndconfig properly detects the sound card during the PCI
probe, but it gives a warning message saying
Warning: This driver is known to lock Dell Inspiron 3500
notebooks that use this chip. Continue anyways?
And when I click Yes, it keeps popping the same warning
message until I click NO. Then the program closes.
I am running RH6.1 on a Compaq 1920 Laptop.
