The drivers are part of the kernel, the tools (configuration tools,
players etc.) are not.

What did lsmod show? Maybe some other driver was already claiming the
soundcard. If, during boot, it still loads the wrong driver, try the
rename thing I mentioned earlier.
You could try unloading all sound related modules that show up in the
lsmod list, and then modprobe snd-cs4236 again.

I haven't configured any ISA PnP cards lately, but maybe something like
pnpdump or lspnp shows something useful. You might need to enter the
right options when you modprobe snd-cs4236 (such as the port or IRQ),
which is probably shown in the output of those commands.

So, in short: First make sure that no other driver is in your way. Then
try to get snd-cs4236 loaded by specifying the right options.
