However I didn't read it properly, and just did 'make install'. Anytime after that that I tried make install20, it gave me that exact error message. After much trying to get the system back the way it was before I ran install, my machine die and I reinstalled redhat. I ran make with the proper parameters and it picked the card up perfectly.

Just try make install20 and see what happens. If it doesnt give any errors try something like 'cat /usr/share/sndconfig/sample.au > /dev/audio' to test it.

Unfortunately I definitely used the "make install20" command. I've tried it several times since and its always the same error (so at least its consistent).
I know the drivers are supposed to work on Redhat, maybe they just aren't compatible with Mandrake (why that would be though I'm not sure).
Oh well I suppose I'll just have to stick to windows for music and multimedia...
Thanks for the suggestion in any case.
