I've discovered a lot of thing about my integrated audio in my MSI K8N
Platinum that has a Creative Sound Blaster Live! 24 bit.
There is a bug in alsa 1.0.8 that prevent the correct detection of MSI
K8N's audio chip.
Bug will be fixed in 1.0.9 and is just fixed in CVS.
In 2.6 kernel the patch is already in 2.6.12rc1

Fedora Core 4 kernel version 2.6.11-1.1191_FC4 has all 2.6.12rc1 patches
(right?) and also alsa patch for MSI.
So I've installed this kernel, now soundcard seems to work but still
1) volume control panel won't open (I've used alsamixer to put up the
volume but no luck)
2) if I play an audio file seems to be played well (with old kernel no
soundcard alert popup), but there is no sound.
3) system-config-soundcard still crash (I think it is unrelated to my
audio chip) --> see attachment.
I'm the only one that I've this kind of motherboard and Fedora Core 4
