sound card not detected after kernel recompile

After compiling a custom kernel (2.4.22, slackware 9.1), my soundcard is no longer detected. the only options i said "yes" to in the sound configuration section were sound support and the one about intel ICH (ixx) support. i am sure the board on my inspiron 8200 is supported in that option. i can't figure out why the card is not detected with my kernel. please help!

what do you mean by not detected.
did the kernel tell you that there is no soundcard detected?
is there an error message telling you.
i think you must load the modules into the kernel
# modprobe [module name]

sorry, i realize that first post was not really specific. I configured sound support and support for my card into the kernel instead of as modules. when i run alsaconf, it says that no supported PCI or PnP card found.
