I'm not sure why you'd want this file. The only catch with running
menuconfig is that you need to install ncurses-dev.

Did you set both "Sound card support" and "/dev/dsp and /dev/audio
support" as well as the specific card (say, Sound Blaster for example).

I copied the file to /root, called it sound.configuration, edited out
the surrounding text, chmod u+x so it's executable and typed
./sound.configuration (I think). Remember that . is not in root's path

I think if you get error messages, it usually means you've done
something wrong in the configuration stage. It certainly did with me.

I'd be loath to start moving things about in the source tree.
