I've installed Fedora on Virtual PC and mostly it went fine. I have network connectivity, for example, and the install correctly recognized the video as a generic S3 Trio, which is the video hardware Virtual PC always emulates. Virtual PC also emulates, however, a Soundblaster 16 ISA Plug and Play, and Fedora seems to have had some trouble with that.

Symptoms:
* If I go to Sound Preferences, select an event that has an associates wav file, and click Play, nothing happens.
* Oddly, the CD Player works just fine. I can hear my CDs.

Observations:
* Hardware Browser, under "unknown devices," lists "Sound Blaster 16."
* The system logs have lots of entries like this:
May 8 11:46:28 localhost modprobe: modprobe: Can't locate module sound-slot-0
May 8 11:46:28 localhost modprobe: modprobe: Can't locate module sound-service-0-3

I'm a Linux newbie. Is there some "module" I should install? How?
