no sound on Fedora 14


I recently installed Fodora 14 on a PC with Asus mainboard.
CPU is AMD LE-1100.
The sound card is Realtek ALC662-GR Azalia High Definition Audio

Unfortunately after installation, there is no sound.
In fedora, System->Preferences->Sound window, Hardware tab is empty.

I tried to install two versions of sound card driver.
One came from the CD of the mainboard called realtek-linux-audiopack-4.06x
First I tried to run the "install", it went through to the final GUI stage searching for the sound card
but failed to find.
Then I tried to do a manual install following the readme file.
Basically, unpack->configure->make
but make failed with the following error message

make[1]: Entering directory `/home/user/00Sound/realtek-linux-audiopack-4.06x/alsa-driver-1.0.14rc3-4.06x/acore'
gcc -D__KERNEL__ -DMODULE=1 -I/home/user/00Sound/realtek-linux-audiopack-4.06x/alsa-driver-1.0.14rc3-4.06x/include -I/lib/modules/ -I/lib/modules/ -O2 -Wdeclaration-after-statement -Wno-pointer-sign -DLINUX -Wall -Wstrict-prototypes -fomit-frame-pointer -Wno-trigraphs -O2 -fno-strict-aliasing -fno-common -pipe -DALSA_BUILD -nostdinc -iwithprefix include -DEXPORT_SYMTAB -c memalloc.c

make[1]: Leaving directory `/home/user/00Sound/realtek-linux-audiopack-4.06x/alsa-driver-1.0.14rc3-4.06x/acore'
make: *** [compile] Error 1

Later I tried to download another version of the driver from Realtek web site

make also failed but with a different error

make -C /lib/modules/ SUBDIRS=/home/user/00Sound/realtek-linux-audiopack-5.15/alsa-driver-1.0.23 CPP="gcc -E" CC="gcc" modules
make[1]: Entering directory `/usr/src/kernels/'

make[1]: *** No rule to make target `/usr/src/kernels/'. Stop.
make[1]: Leaving directory `/usr/src/kernels/'
make: *** [compile] Error 2

Could you please give me some advice on how to fix the problems?

Thanks in advance!
