I know this isn't helpful, but when I run system-config-soundcard, I get 
a dialog box the lists my soundcard and asks if I want to play a sample 
sound or cancel. So it isn't broken here.

Maybe you have a broken install. Does your stuff look like this?

in /usr/bin

lrwxrwxrwx  1 root root 13 Nov 19 22:58 system-config-soundcard -> 
consolehelper

-rwxr-xr-x  1 root root 3696 Oct 20 02:15 consolehelper

in /usr/share/system-config-soundcard

total 1296
