If I can pick up a cheap audio card that is known to work with Centros I
could likely expense it but I don't want to buy something, have it not
work then try and explain that to the penny-pincers...

upgrade a Fedora Core 1 box that currently acts as our main file and
mail server. Do you know if Centros would recognize the AC97 onboard
