If you have a SB AWE, you can install the AWE patches (some debian
packages) for midi support.
You can also buy the commercial version of OSS sound driver.
Obviously, you need to recompile the kernel.
Try the kernel package for that, it is a lot easier than the canonical way.
If you have any more questions, write to the list.
PS: Try the Sound-HOWTO for more information.
