Cool someone recommended my web site.... But I don't really address
sound on the site other than to say turning off the microphone helped. 

Sound came with the Red Hat install I did; if I remember right it just

After finals I will work back through it. I plan to repartition and
install Red Hat 6.2 or maybe get real brave and do a Debian install.
