Hi and I did find alsamixer and after reading man alsamixer I learned 
how to use it. But I turned on EVERYTHING and still the Microphne signal 
to the software Skype is dead. I can change the audio level I hear FROM 
skype. My mike is plugged into the sound card and it works fine in FC4. 
In F7 it's the same sound card!

I have another problem. About half the time I bring up F7 it does not 
come clear up. The background comes up fine but the upper and lower bars 
do not form and the things on the DeskTop are not shown. But I received 
some updates with no problem. I get out of the darn thing with Ctrl Alt 
F2 login as root and type reboot.
