[CentOS] Audio issue(s)

I just bought a new (refurbished) Everexe StepNote laptop with a VIA
C7-M CPU and a VIA chipset, installed CentOS 5.4 on it and the audio
is not working.

I looked around for a sound driver for the VIA vt1708/a, which is what
it claims to have (see below), but that didn't work either.

Any pointers as to what I'm missing?

!lpspci

(VIA High Definition Audio Controller) (rev 10)
