I've been running SuSE since 7.3, and have found their ALSA integration to be
excellent, with configuring soundcards just a matter of "point-and-click" in
Yast2. I've found it's even possible to install a newer ALSA version "from
source" over the top on the SuSE stuff and still have things work quite well.
Of course, if you change the kernel version, you will have to rebuild the
modules, but that's mostly just a matter of installing the appropriate SRPM
and doing the build.
