I've just gotten my AWE64 working, after a few problems. Are you compiling as 
a module, or built in?

My problem, you see, is that I wasn't loading the sound modules into the 
kernel. I never thought about that, because I've never had to do so in the 
past under Redhat. What I didn't realise is that Redhat includes a script 
that loads them automatically. Maybe you'll have the same problem?

It may not be a solutionh to your current problem, but it's possibly 
something you'll encounter later...
