Try ALSA. No need to recompile the whole kernel. The ALSA modules only
need to be compiled once for a given kernel and they can be put into a
package. In fact, they already are. Look at the alsa-modules-* packages.
Run alsaconf to configure the whole thing and you'll have sound without
recompiling anything.
