Fedora now uses ALSA
system.config-sound will help you set up your card

Make sure the volume (master and PCM / PCM2 are turned up)

~/Desktop is the new standard location for Gnome / KDE desktops. The old
place was ~/.gnome-desktop. I'd have thought things would've been moved
for you , but maybe not.

Open your X config file and set:

        Option      "XkbRules" "xorg"

It's prolly currently set to XFree86. That'll fix the problem, and
this'll be done by default in future.

How odd. What does it say if you try running it from the command line?

Indeed, 2.6.5 doesn't support firewire. There'll be an update soon
(maybe already) to fix this.
