Your sb module is not configured yet.

Create a file to /etc/modutils/, for example 'sound' and write there
configuration for sb module, something like this:

options sb io=0x220 irq=5 dma=1 dma16=5 mpu_io=0x330

The run update-modules and reboot. I hope it works.

My card is SoundBlaster AWE32, but when I commented out the line above,
ran update-modules and rebooted, I got exactly same error message as you
