I'm not familiar with that particular hardware, but this sounds like your 
problem right there.  You need soundcore, and then every other module you 
load should start with snd-.

You're trying to modprobe an OSS module (opl3sa2), and that's doomed to fail 
if you've got snd loaded already.  Pick one or the other, and preferably pick 
ALSA (snd-opl3sa2).  (It looks like maybe you want snd-ymfpci too, maybe?  I 
don't know what modules you need, but looks like a likely candidate to me.)

Are you by chance using the discover utility to auto detect your hardware?  
I've noticed it's not clever enough to realize that OSS and ALSA modules are 
oil and water, and it will load both unless you take steps to prevent this.  
It leaves you with a mess you can't get out of without rebooting.  I don't 
use discover for this very reason.  It's more trouble to coax it into not 
doing something stupid than it is to avoid it altogether.
