I installed FC4-x86_64 on my machine which is Athlon64 3000+, initially 
the system-config-soundcard can not play sound out.

but after I "yum update", now it upgrade to 
system-config-soundcard-1.2.12-2, when I try to play sound detection 
program, it will not run as following:
Traceback (most recent call last):
 File "/usr/share/system-config-soundcard/", 
line 46, in ?
   app = soundcard.childWindow()
 File "/usr/share/system-config-soundcard/", line 64, in 
   self.cardList = self.soundcardBackend.probeCards()
 File "/usr/share/system-config-soundcard/", line 
111, in probeCards    driverList = read_driver_list()
 File "/usr/share/system-config-soundcard/", line 48, 
in read_driver_list
   fd = open('/proc/asound/modules', 'r')
IOError: [Errno 2] No such file or directory: '/proc/asound/modules'
and indeed there is no /proc/asound.
I have 939NF4G-SATA2 motherboard which intergrated sound card,I use to install nvsound module. using 
"lsmod", I found "nvsound" and "soundcore", but no others snd modules.

Also, it seems that although system-config-soundcard can't work, the 
sound card actually can produce sound using one sound create 
application(i forget the name).

How can I do to let /proc/asound directory appear?

Thanks a lot!
