why did you choose RH9? its rather old / outdated / unsupported.
you should upgrade to Fedora Core 6, which was just released the 24th of this month. Fedora is what replaced the free version of RH, and RH9 was the last version that RH produced.

if you insist on using it, however, does lspci display your sound card?

theres links for the download at the top of the page if you go to http://www.fedoraproject.org where you can download via ftp/http or through a torrent from the main server, but its usually faster to download from a mirror

lspci is a command that you can run that lists your peripherals and it will show you what all pci devices are detected. so to run this command, you would open up a terminal or console window, and then just enter it as you see it.

what exactly do you mean? once you're booted in to fedora you'd open up a terminal, enter su and your root user password to get super user privileges and then use yum (the command is yum blah) to install / update / remove software. or you could use yum to install yumex which is the gui for yum (to do this you'd enter: yum -y install yumex)
if theres an rpm package for FC6 that you find but isn't in the yum repository, you'd open up a terminal and enter su with your root password again and then enter rpm -ivh /path/to/rpm/file-version-arch.rpm
