I think this fits here better

I considered putting it here, but then I thought, "Where would someone
who is wondering about support for a sound card look:  Multimedia or
Kernel?"  Now, we who know Linux know that a sound card requires a
kernel module, etc.  But is that how an ISA sound card user is going to
think about it?  To be honest, I actually expect most folks would look
for "Is my sound card supported?" under something such as "hardware",
"sound cards", or "multimedia".

What do the rest of you think?

  === Preparing for Kernel Development ===

kernel-devel package is required now to build external modules.
Configured sources are available, as described in the kernel flavors

+ === ISA Sound Cards ===
+ The kernel in Fedora 7 no longer loads modules by default for ISA 
+ sound cards.  Load the module by hand {{{modprobe module-name}}} or by
+ putting an entry in `/etc/modprobe.conf`.  For example, for the
+ Creative SoundBlaster AWE64:
+ {{{install snd-sbawe
+ }}}
