I am assuming when you are using FC2 that you have installed the latest 
updates and are running kernel 2.6.9?  If so, this is one of your 
problems.  The Alsa version that comes with 2.6.9 (v1.0.6) is broken wrt 
SBLive and intel8x0.  You will want to get alsa 1.0.7 from 
http://alsa-project.org (or 1.0.5a works also).

That would be a good idea, at least to cut down on clutter.  I did this
