You need the latest ALSA drivers, specifically the snd-azx driver, 
please check http://alsa.opensrc.org and maybe 
http://heidelberg.freshrpms.net, the first to lear more about HD audio 
on Linux with ALSA, the second to see if you can find any alsa-1.0.8 
precompiled RPM binaries for your kernel and your system (you will need 
the alsa-utils, lib, and oss packages)
