Do you have any of the following installed?
audiofile
esound-devel
esound-libs
pulseaudio
pulseaudio-esound-compat
xine-lib-extras

I have a system with all of the above installed and sound is working.
I'm going to double-check my friend's system and make sure he has them
as well. Perhaps one of these is a dependent package and is missing or
has some other sort of problem.

Cheers,

Chris
