Read the doc in /usr/src/linux/Documentation (or whereever you placed your
kernel source).  It boils down to:

make {menu,x}config
sound as module
sound blaster

insmod soundcore
insmod sound
insmod uart401
modprobe opl3
insmod sb irq=5 io=0x220 dma=0


Add the needed items to /etc/modutils/alias and off you go

If needed, I can give you my info from the laptop, but reading and learning is
obviously more beneficial to you (-:
