In the menu (in gnome it is on the top bar of your screen by default),
applications->Sound & Video ->Alsa Mixer.

There are a lot of controls.  You can look at them, try them and click
on the buttons at the bottom to mute them.  Most important I have found
for my uses are master, Master Surround, PCM, CD, Video, AUX, Capture,
and Stereo Mic.  You may find others that you need for your
use/applications.

	If you don't have Alsa Mixer you may have to install it.  You can find
it on the Applications>add or remove software and looking for the Alsa
Mixer application in the various categories.  I forget which one.  You
can find information about it by becoming root in a terminal window:
	% su -
	# yum whatprovides Alsa

Should do it for you.
