Just for the archive, I now can record audio.  The original poster
forwarded to me a recommendation from another source that he try ALSA
with OSS emulation.  I thought I had tried ALSA before, but it worked
fine this time.  I use Sarge, which has both ALSA and OSS, and the
startup loads both types of modules, so that might have confused
matters.  I don't know if it is necessary, but I put entries in
/etc/modules to load the OSS emulation modules for ALSA, and the other
ALSA modules are all automatically loaded.
