Can't rmmod kernal sound drivers


I am trying to get alsa installed, and when I go to disable my default kernel sound drivers, I get this message:

#rmmod soundcore
soundcore: Device or resource busy

What should I do to get this disabled, and what do I do once it is disabled to load the alsa drivers?

BTW, here's my lsmod:

Code:
audio                  46296   1
soundcore               6468   2  [audio]
this means soundcore is being used by audio, so remove audio.
