Yes, that is what first did before starting this thread. It gave
nothing. If this is true, then ...

... this does make sense. However, if I select OSS from KDE's sound
settings dialog box, I still get audio though it appears it is not using
Alsa anymore (my alsa specific options are ignored). Perhaps the
emulation is working here?

Here is what i have:
$> ls /lib/modules/2.6.24-1-686/kernel/sound/oss/
ac97_codec.ko aedsp16.ko mpu401.ko pas2.ko sb.ko sound.ko
trident.ko uart401.ko v_midi.ko
ad1848.ko kahlua.ko opl3.ko pss.ko sb_lib.ko sscape.ko
And looks like none of this is being used:
$> for f in /lib/modules/2.6.24-1-686/kernel/sound/oss/*; do k=`echo $f
| sed -e 's/.*\/\(.*\)\.ko/\1/'`; lsmod | grep -w $k; done
