I have the same problem with my isa sound card.
Normally, with other distro, I 've only to run
sndconfig , which detects the card.
Unfortunately, with sarge, the soundcore is called
soundcore.ko, while sndconfig searches for
soundcore.o and even if you rename it the problem
the detection is automatic with the anacondaz
installer, I have sent a message ( " why not anaconda"
) I hope that the debian developpers keep in mind that
the most users of debian and linux in general use a
graphics, workstation and other multi media in PC's.
John Summerfield sent a very good answer , thank you
That means sndconfig is only for 2.4.x kernels and before -- the new .ko
end is new in 2.6.x kernels;
Install hotplug and/or discover and your PC will probably autodetect
which modules to use
