ALSA won't detect SB128

Dear All,

I'm running unstable on a P3 750 / Intel D815EEA box with a Soundblaster
128 (SB 4.1 Digital, indeed). ALSA won't even see it. I have installed
version 0.9.4-1. Running alsaconf I get the message

modinfo: snd: no module by that name found

repeated a couple of times and then a blue screen telling me that no
supported PnP cards were found. 

FWIW, if I try running esd I get the message 

/dev/dsp: No such device

So maybe there's something more subtle than a break in ALSA?
Frustratingly as ever it's all rosy under Windows so I don't think it's
a hardware problem. 

Any suggestions? What other diagnostics should I post?
