apt-get install alsa-oss alsa-base alsa-utils alsa-modules-2.4-386

Make sure that the OSS driver is not in /etc/modules, and that you don't
have any alias sound-slot-0 entry in /etc/modutils/*. Unload the OSS
driver (or reboot), login at the command line, and run alsaconf (if you
use discover, this is probably not necessary, it will load the driver
automaticallc). Run alsamixer to adjust the volume. That should be all.
