The alsa documentation mentions that alsa comes up after installation 
completely muted and suggests unmuting with one of the mixers.  In RH 7.2 
with KDE, the Kmenu shows Aumix and Sound Mixer (the latter puts up a mixer 
labeled Kmix).  I found that increasing the volume with either Kmix or Aumix 
makes great volume.

If you're just running a command line, try man aumix.
