ALSA modules problem

Hi I'm running debian on a Dell inspiron 5100 laptop.
I've a custom kernel v 2.4.20 with the ACPI patch working.

I wanted to get sound working on my laptop.
My laptop has the Intel 810 and the module is i810

this is the relevant dmesg output

Intel 810 + AC97 Audio, version 0.21, 08:36:18 Jul 31 2003
PCI: Setting latency timer of device 00:1f.5 to 64
i810: Intel ICH4 found at IO 0x1c80 and 0x1400, IRQ 10
	i810_audio: Audio Controller supports 6 channels.
ac97_codec: AC97 Audio codec, id: ??v80(Unknown)
	i810_audio: AC'97 codec 0 supports AMAP, total channels = 2
ac97_codec: AC97 Modem codec, id: CXT34(Unknown)
	i810_audio: timed out waiting for codec 1 analog ready.

I installed alsa-source, alsa-base, alsa-utils and alsa-xmms (all 0.9.4-1)

	then I recompiled my kernel with sound card support and selected my
	module, I then did a make-kpkg for both kernel_image and

	the problem I have is when I try and install alsa-modules

	Here is the error I get
	herenya:/usr/src# dpkg -i
	(Reading database ... 21862 files and directories currently
	Preparing to replace alsa-modules-
	0.9.4-1+10.00.Custom (using

i have no idea what to do next.
Any help would be greatly appreciated!
