Not sure where your problem is coming from, but my first post-install 
move is to use the Control Center to turn off arts and then remove 
kaboodle and noatun from being associated with any files.

/var/log/messages has good things, also lsmod to see if your module is 
in, and System Settings | Soundcard Detection might have something to 
say too.

Again this isn't directly any help, but my next post-install move is 
to compile ALSA and move over to that.  If you do this, be sure to 
read this

There was also a problem with Fedora not being able to compile the 
serial midi module, I didn't need it so I used when compiling the 
alsa-driver stuff

./configure --with-cards=<my card>

which made for a faster compile anyway.
