You did not really need to do this, just drop the Autosuspend if idle
timeout down to 1-2 seconds for the aRTs sound system.

Can't say for sure, since you have not provided any hardware information.
Most applications can use either the Alsa, Esound or OSS sound packages,
which can be found on the RHL-7.3 CD's(esound and oss only). It's up to
you to select the sound driver with the application in most cases. Check
under the preferences section of the application.
