Don't waste the time ... current cvs will _never_ support the old
alsa modules.
I'm working on getting the ALSA stuff to work, but it's not too easy
and currently the Power Supply Fan of my workstation is broken so
I need to get a new one first and then we'll see ...
Also one of the problems is finding a working current cvs kernel ;)

I think I once got it to work a bit under 2.2.10 or something like that.
Everything newer, like 2.4 is a big no no.

Hmmm, my Power Supply smells again ... cu later guys
