Anyone having problems with alsa on FC3 should check the version if it's 
1.0.6, it's a turkey.  I couldn't get that working on FC3 and finally did 
get alsa working on slackware 10.1 but that was alsa-xxx-1.0.8.  You may 
need to rebuild the kernel with alsa-xxx-1..0.8 to get sound working at 
all in FC3.  Unfortunately I haven't yet managed a successful kernel 
rebuild in Linux or I'd share the steps with you here and now.  I did 
research on the web site for my card and I'm not sure 
what all I read there was completely accurate either.  There were extra 
oss-related modules I loaded once doing a modprobe snd-ens1371 then I ran 
alsaconf on slackware and all worked correctly.  On fedora I selected the 
sound card then got an error 1119 when it was time for alsaconf to use my 
sound card.  In any case i'm about to reinstall slackware to fix a couple 
bad choices I made with startx setup and with luck I'll have gnopernicus 
up and talking shortly after that.  At least slackware has a mouth now.
