I'm not awfully familiar with that card, as I have a ISA version of it.

If your card really is PCI, there's no need to configure anything except
OSS sound modules in your kernel. You did that, didn't you ?
They maybe even precompiled, check /lib/modules/<your_kernel_version>/misc
for sb.o and sbawe.o. If they are there, just "modprobe -ak sb".
There's additional docs in the kernel source tree for configuring awe...

If you want to get it the easier way, may I suggest ALSA. 
Search for alsa with dselect.
