sound install problems on an iMac


I try to install sound support on my iMac. Therefore I activated via modconf 

rowe:/# lsmod
Module                  Size  Used by    Not tainted
macserial              39364   0  (autoclean)
lp                      7936   0  (autoclean)
parport                30624   0  (autoclean) [lp]
dmasound_pmac          47144   0
i2c-core               14776   0  [dmasound_pmac]
dmasound_core          13640   0  [dmasound_pmac]
soundcore               4840   3  [dmasound_core]
printer                 6768   0
ipv6                  166996  -1
rtc                     1792   0  (autoclean)

Then I started KDE 2.2.2, but after the login I get the following error 

Error while initializing the sound driver SNDCTL_DSP_SETFMT faild - Invalid 
argument. The sound driver will continue using the null output device.

I have found a further hint in the archives (Suse,Debian), that said, that I 
have to modify the file modules.conf, putting into the file 
/etc/modutils/sound the following entries:

alias	char-major-14		dmasound_pmac 
alias	sound			dmasound_pmac
alias	midi			dmasound_pmac
alias	sound-service-0-3	dmasound_pmac

(debian- and suse-archive)
alias	sound-slot-0		dmasound_pmac
alias	sound-service-0-0	dmasound_pmac

But I cannot found the /etc/modutils/sound file:

rowe:/etc/modutils# ls
0keep  actions  aliases  arch  paths  ppp  setserial

Do I have to create the sound file in modutils?

Thanks for all the help I will get.
