    hi everyone,

    I have 4 point creative also - check their website, they have linux drivers I believe - if not, people have had alot of luck with the ALSA (Advanced Linux Sound Architecture) drivers - which I believe redhat uses by default, but you can setup to use all 4 speakers.

    Also, check that you are not actually getting sound, just fainter out of the rear speakers, that's what mine did by default.
