(1) Make sure you have loadable module support enableded.
(2) Include sound support kernel as module (did not know why it does not
    work as builtin 
(3) Create a file emu10k1 in /etc/modutils with the following contenst:
    alias char-major-14 emu10k1
(4) Copy the emu10k1.o and optionally emu10k1-joy.o into
    /lib/modules/2.2.x/misc
(5) Do update-modules
(6) Make sure you are allowed to use the /dev/dsp device by setting the
    desired user to group audio "adduser NAME audio"
(7) Testing with "cat some.txt >/dev/dsp" should make noise.

HTH.

Kai.
