1. All that stuff which was in modules.conf now goes elsewhere: modprobe.conf 
or modules.conf.alsa. /etc/modprobe.d/alsa is auto-generated but you may need 
to add your non-autodetected devices. Check with other for most correct place 
to add then. I actually have it in both. Those /etc/alsa/modutils/ items are, 
I believe, relevant to the old kernel.

2. Make sure nothing is loading OSS modules. If you do not have them compiled 
in the kernel, then they are not there. Some folks run "discover", and handy 
utiltity (Knoppix does this as well) and this load OSS drivers if they are 

3. If you are using USB devices, you need to have uhci-hcd loaded, ie. 
in /etc/modules. Note that I am having problems with this module (which 
replaces usb-uhci used in older kenrels).
