Perhaps it needs plug-n-play to assign resources to it.

If it is a plug-n-play problem, install the isapnptools package, read
/usr/share/doc/isapnptools/*.  Run pnpdump, edit the output and save it
as /etc/isapnp.conf, then run "isapnp /etc/isapnp.conf".

Then modprobe your sound driver with the correct options.  Use "modinfo
-p modulename" to see the list of supported options.

When you have found the right configuration, create a file
/etc/modutils/local, in which you put the lines: 

  alias char-major-14 modulename 
  options modulename moduleoptions

Then run update-modules.  Check that /etc/modules.conf now contains the
above lines.
