This seems to be related with bug 92229

Comment 2 Bill Nottingham 2003-11-06 22:31:02 UTC
What does it say for the mfr/model of the card?

Comment 3 Isaac Salsberg 2003-11-06 23:17:19 UTC
On linux, the sound card was detected as  "Intel 82801BA/BAM" and is 
using the module: i810_audio.

The kernel version is: 2.4.20-20.9.

It works fine under windows. Windows detects the card as:
"SoundMax Integrated Digital Audio.
Manufactured by Analog Devices Inc."

It's being detected correctly. If it's not working, that's a driver

Thanks for the bug report. However, Red Hat no longer maintains this version of
the product. Please upgrade to the latest version and open a new bug if the problem

The Fedora Legacy project (http://fedoralegacy.org/) maintains some older releases, 
and if you believe this bug is interesting to them, please report the problem in
the bug tracker at: http://bugzilla.fedora.us/
