I don't know if I fully understand the issue and am not familiar with your soundcard (I have Sound Blaster Live ! 5.1 which works with the emu10k1 module) You should try to find your cards "module/driver" and load it via modprobe; it may already be present and you wouldn't have to
compile alsa at all. After a successful modprobe (i would try sb module ; but look on a list) then you need to unmute the channels to get sound (ie use aumix; amixer; kmix; gmix; rexima )
