This is probably a pulseaudio issue.  To check, do a
yum remove pulseaudio-alsa
If sound works like it did in Fedora 7 after this, then there is a 
misconfiguration in the pulseaudio - ALSA link.

I don't need any of the functionality that pulseaudio provides so
I turned it off in the configuration file (go to www.pulseaudio.org for 
documentation as there doesn't appear to be any packaged with Fedora).

Hope that helps.
