Mark's suggestion, dumping GNOME, is probably the easiest approach.
But, if you really want to follow the Red Hat Way, it may be possible
to tame the noisier parts of GNOME. The main culprit appears to be
the GNOME desktop, which periodically scans the CD-ROM to see if a CD
has been inserted. Turning this off may help quite a bit.
Unfortunately, I don't have any specific directions handy.
If you haven't already seen it, take a careful look at the Linux Audio
Users Low-Latency HOWTO:
Tuning Linux PC hardware and software for low-latency audio is a bit
of a black art. But, there's a good deal of experience on this list
and some helpful people, so don't give up. Keep us posted on what you
learn so others can benefit from it, too.
