Do you have the appropriate driver in your kernel? Is you 2.4.18 kernel a
stock Debian one, or did you compile it yourself? If it is a Debian kernel,
then I guess it will be compiled as a module.

As root:

# modconf



Then scroll to see if the driver is there. If it is load it.

If it is not there, you will have to compile a new kernel. Enjoy ;-)

Sorry don't know about ALSA. But I guess that making sure you have the
driver for your card will be the first step.
