Thank you very much, Andreas. Yes, that's all it takes to replace OSS with
alsa. Just for the archive, here are all that I did:

$ lsmod | grep _audio
via82cxxx_audio        17404   0 

$ grep -i via /etc/modules || echo no

$ grep sound-slot /etc/modutils/* || echo no

debfoster alsa-oss alsa-base alsa-utils alsa-modules-2.4-k7

rmmod via82cxxx_audio

then reboot.

PS. I have discover1, in this case, running alsaconf will give me:
No supported PnP or PCI card found.

Thanks again Andreas!
