The reason I've included so much data is to indicate that problem is
deeper than something a rudimentary response can solve.  I am came to
OCLUG because I was getting virtually no responses from the Fedora
Sites.  I agree that FC4 does seem to have a lot of sound questions and
few final answers.  I was hoping there was someone on our own OCLUG site
that was a bit of a guru when it comes to sound.

The problem is that I can get sound working -- kinda.  But not well and
not the way it should.

As always Raj, I appreciate your advice. Sound seems to be another
intuitive area in Linux, with no starter manuals explaining what the
various channels and modules are for or how they work.
