You might be able to use alsa without recompile the kernel, 
I don't know. It is a sound blaster 16 compatible card.
there are:
alsa-modules-2.2.17 - Advanced Linux Sound Architecture (drivers)
alsa-modules-2.2.19 - Advanced Linux Sound Architecture (drivers)

and a bunch of modules for 2.4.3 kernels
