OOPS!!!! Why no sound card?
What exactly is an OQO?
I have the model 2 without the touchscreen or WiMax.
No sound card, means just that. the soundcard can't be detected.
You may find that the snd modules are loaded. Try the command as below,
and post back the output.
/sbin/lsmod | grep snd
snd_hda_intel 351124 0
snd_seq_dummy 6660 0
snd_seq_oss 30364 0
snd_seq_midi_event 9600 1 snd_seq_oss

Which make/model of Laptop/PC is this? The OQO bit is a bit confusing.
I have 4 of these to be a portable test/demo bed. 3 of them have Centos
5.2 on them. One has F10. Interesting comparison of what works for
Centos and what with F10. Sound is one of the items working fine with
the Centos installs.
You could download the script from the link below, save it as
alsa-info.sh, make it executable, then run it as ./alsa-info.sh. Running
this script will upload info about your machine, and specifically sound
related stuff to a website. Post back the link to the site, and I, and
hopefully others can examine your problem.
