I haven't played with FC 6yet, but here's how I solved this in Slackware. The sound is muted by default. Run alsamixer as root and unmute everything and set the volume bars to 90%. If I recall, the 'm' key toggles the mute setting, arrow keys adjust the volume. You'll need to move thru all the settings.
Then exit alsamixer and do 'alsactl store'.
You'll probably need to add your username to the group 'audio'.
'gpasswd -a user audio'
Reboot and see it if that works in FC.
