FC2 help with alsa install

I am installing the newest alsa drivers and when I get to the part when i have to enter:

modprobe snd-ca0106;modprobe snd-pcm-oss;modprobe snd-mixer-oss;modprobe snd-seq-oss

I get this:

[alex@localhost alex]# modprobe snd-ca0106;modprobe snd-pcm-oss;modprobe snd-mixer-oss;modprobe snd-seq-oss
bash: modprobe: command not found
bash: modprobe: command not found
bash: modprobe: command not found
bash: modprobe: command not found
[alex@localhost alex]#

These are the directions I am following:

What command do I enter to insert the modules into the kernel?

AFAIK to insert modules into the running kernel you need to be root... become root first and then try the modprobe again.

Looks like you're trying the modprobe as su. Try 'su -' instead (without quotes).
