Default nForce + RHL 7.3

My board is a MSI 420 K7N Pro w/ nVidia nForce chipset for sound and ethernet.

X is running fine, but I've yet to get any sound.
The file I used was NVIDIA_nforce-1.0-0236.src.rpm

1) Gave this command:
#rpm --rebuild NVIDIA_nforce-1.0-0236.src.rpm

2) cd'ed into /usr/src/redhat/RPMS/i386

3) Gave command:
#rpm -ivh NVIDIA_nforce-1.0-0236.i386.rpm

Driver installed w/o any error.

4)Ran this to configure s/card:


[PCI Probe Results]
A sound card was found in your system. The details are:
Model: nVidia Corporation|
unknown device 10de:01b0

The nVidia Corporation|
unknown device 10de:01b0 is not supported

Took a look into /lib/modules/2.4.18-3/kernel/drivers/sound
and there is a nvaudio.o file (There's also a file w/ a name of nvaudio.o~)

Tried insmod that file and got this error

Warning: loading nvaudio.o will taint the kernel: no license
nvaudio.o: init_module: No such device
Hint: insmod errors can be caused by incorrect module parameters, including invalid IO or IRQ parameters

Apparently, something's wrong w/ the card IO or IRQ. What do I do to get the correct settings?

Do I need to recompile my kernel?
It seems that everytime I recompile the kernel X wont want to start again.
The only luck i've had w/ X is without a kernel recompile.

Any suggestions are appreciated
