Could you explain this more accurate - does the system complain after
booting that someone has altered /etc/modules.conf or does the kernel
need a reboot to load the contents?
After all, why does /etc/modules.conf need to be edited by the make
install20 procedure since this sound card is definetly a PCI device?

What is a "indentation level" and could you explain the CONF edition
and 'update-modules' procedure more precisly - I'm getting so unsure
what exactly to do.
This is the original aureal make routine:
mv -f $(CONF) $(CONF).old
gawk -f mod_conf $(CONF).old > $(CONF)
echo "alias sound $(NAME)" >> $(CONF)
echo "alias midi $(NAME)" >> $(CONF)
mkdir -p $(MODDIR)
cp -f $(NAME).o $(MODDIR)
