Take it easy, since you have reasonable /var/log/messages stuff maybe you are 
not far off.   I can see two things I might have expected in your list but 
didn't see.

First, cat /proc/asound/cards and see what Alsa thinks you have.

Next, have a look and see if you have alsamixer in your path, if not install

http://www.mirror.ac.uk/sites/download.fedora.redhat.com/pub/fedora/linux/core/development/i386/Fedora/RPMS/alsa-utils-1.0.3-1.i386.rpm

Make sure you have this guy too

rpm -q alsa-lib

if not, get it here

http://www.mirror.ac.uk/sites/download.fedora.redhat.com/pub/fedora/linux/core/development/i386/Fedora/RPMS/alsa-lib-1.0.4-1.i386.rpm

Then run alsamixer (the gold standard for alsa volume control) and see what 
you see.  Note that many mixer chips have a bit to control the power to an 
external audio amplifier, if this is set to power the amp off you will get no 
output.
