You need to do most system administration as root. Use sudo.
If you look around the menus, RH9 has a program (menu entry) called
something like "detect/activate sound card". You have to go there and
click a button or two and from then on your sound card should work.
The "firstboot" package also has a sound card screen. It seems that
later RH releases (try either Fedora Core, or CentOS, which is free,
unbranded version or RHEL) have gotten better at keeping the sound
