Thanks, a few more questions.. sorry I don't understand most of this..
1) hda-verb - I can't find this.. what is it? Where do I run it?
2) Inside of the snapshot, there are three steps (6, 7,8 below) that I need
6 - i already have /dev/snd with some stuff in it... so, I won't run this
7 - edit it to do what?
8 - I dont know the name of my card..
6) Run the './snddevices' script to create new sound devices in /dev
Skip this step, if you have already /dev/snd/* files, or if you're
using a DEVFS or udev.
7) Edit your kernel module config (either /etc/modprobe.conf or
/etc/modules.conf, depending on the kernel version). If you are not
sure, what to do, you may try the alsaconf script available in
the alsa-utils package.
8) Run 'modprobe snd-xxxx' where xxxx is the name of your card.
Note: All ALSA ISA drivers support ISA PnP natively, so you don't need
isapnptools any more. Don't use both together. It will
conflict. For disabling the ALSA ISA PnP support, specify
--with-isapnp=no configure switch.
