Presently I am using rawhide and the graphics display is broken for me. 
I have a radeon card where the gdm respawns. I believe I can set the ati 
card to settings which would allow gdm to load successfully.

I never examined the login manager for sound features before since it is 
used for such a short time to login, so pretty unexplored in my computing.

If Fedora 8 is having problems with gdm and sound, it is probably a bug 
introduced in the Fedora version used.
