I mooted this problem by ditching ALSA: I read the Debian sound HOWTO
(http://www.tux.org/~tbr/sound-debian/), used isapnptools to configure
the card, and loaded the appropriate modules.

If anyone else has an IBM PC 300PL with a CS4235 (CS4235B, according
to a spec sheet I found), I've attached my isapnp.conf file. I used
modconf to configure the cs4232 module (kernel 2.4.19-686) with the
parameters "io=0x532 irq=5 dma=1 dma2=0", and added the users on the
system to the audio group so they could write to the audio
devices. All seems well. (Translation: I can play mp3s. I have yet to
make /dev/sequencer work -- maybe it's a hardware problem; maybe it's
a configuration error. Either way, MIDI isn't a priority for me.)


# For details of this file format, see isapnp.conf(5)
# LD n = Logical device, ie write to reg 7
# IO n = IO descriptor n
# BASE n = IO/Mem address
# INT n = Interrupt req n
# IRQ n = Interrupt level
# MODE = line levels etc
# ACT = Activate

#(READPORT 0x3bb)
#(CONFIGURE DFX0000/1493 (LD 0 (IO 0 (BASE 0x3e8)) (INT 0 (IRQ 12 (MODE +E))) (ACT Y)))
#(CONFIGURE DFX0000/1493 (LD 0 (REG 7 (PEEK)) (REG 0x30 (PEEK))))
#(CONFIGURE DFX0000/1493 (LD 1 (REG 7 (PEEK)) (REG 0x30 (PEEK))))
# Try to force logical device 2 (which doesn't exist)...
#(CONFIGURE DFX0000/1493 (LD 1 (REG 7 (POKE 2) (PEEK)) (REG 0x30 (PEEK))))
# .. hence this gives an error
#(CONFIGURE DFX0000/1493 (LD 2 (REG 7 (PEEK)) (REG 0x30 (PEEK))))
