I can't help you, but am interested in your method.
I don't have a Kmenu=>System Tools=>Hardware Browser item.
What package does this come with?

I've always found the sound tools in RedHat/Fedora completely useless.
In particular, system-config-soundcard 
or System Settings=>Soundcard Detection 
have never been the slightest use to me.
If sound is working, they tell me it is working.
If it is not working, they tell me it is not working.

The only method I've found to work
is to compile a kernel with the appropriate driver module,
and make sure it is running with modprobe.
