Im doing that right now.
Im busy installing ALSA (VERY cool) and im confused with these two steps
7) Edit your kernel module config (either /etc/modprobe.conf or
/etc/modules.conf, depending on the kernel version). If you are not
sure, what to do, you may try the alsaconf script available in
the alsa-utils package.
8) Run 'modprobe snd-xxxx' where xxxx is the name of your card.
Note: All ALSA ISA drivers support ISA PnP natively, so you don't need
isapnptools any more. Don't use both together. It will
conflict. For disabling the ALSA ISA PnP support, specify
--with-isapnp=no configure switch.
