Description of problem:
I have 2 Athlon PCs. One has an Epox 8KHA/+ motherboard and the other has an MSI
KT3Ultra2 motherboard. Both have an on-board VIA Technologies  VT8233 AC97 Audio
Controller and I cannot get sound from either one of them. Here are the entries
in /var/log/messages when I run sndconfig:

Oct 14 15:27:50 29 insmod:
/lib/modules/2.4.18-14/kernel/drivers/sound/via82cxxx_audio.o: init_module: No
such device
Oct 14 15:27:50 29 insmod: Hint: insmod errors can be caused by incorrect module
parameters, including invalid IO or IRQ parameters.       You may find more
information in syslog or the output from dmesg
Oct 14 15:27:50 29 insmod:
/lib/modules/2.4.18-14/kernel/drivers/sound/via82cxxx_audio.o: insmod
sound-slot-0 failed
Oct 14 15:27:50 29 modprobe: modprobe: Can't locate module sound-service-0-3

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Run sndconfig
2. Hit OK
3. It finds the sound card:

A PCI sound card was found in your
system. The details are:

Model: VIA Technologies|VT8233
AC97 Audio Controller

4. Hit OK. It will now want to play a sound sample:

A sound sample will now be played to
determine if your sound card has been
correctly configured.

5. Hit OK.

6. It then displays:

The following error occurred running the modprobe program:

init_module: No such device
insmod sound-slot-0 failed

7. Hit OK

It then launches you into a "Manual Configuration" screen which essentially
repeats the process again except you get to pick the driver.

Actual Results:  No sound and just errors on both the screen and in the messages
log file.

Expected Results:  The sound should have worked OK.
