James,

It should just work. The only problem I had was switching from the 
laptop's microphone to the one that came with my headphones since it's 
more performant. I did this by selecting it in the sound preferences 
(gnome-volume-control).
Also, make sure you have installed the 32 bit pulseaudio libs, if 
you're on 64bit; or you can "yum install" this repo which will pull in 
the required deps:
