ALSA not loading at startup

Hi all... again me with an alsa issue

I managed to install the beast with the RPMs found at Shrike's Freshmeat page. Then I downloaded the sources (it was not saving volume settings) and compiled them, uninstalled the rpms, installed the built modules, libs, utils and oss-emulation, but now it wont even load the modules at startup. I managed to finally load them manually by:

#modprobe snd snd-emu10k1 snd-pcm

Problem is that they would not load at start up even if I had the entries at modules.conf. What shall I do? use insmod instead?

PS: Although I've used linux for 5 years now, I never installed alsa before (and certainly is the most difficult piece of software I've installed, besides of my first kernel compilation)

You would go to /etc/rc.d

then vi rc.local

Enter the modprobe lines you use in here and it will load when you boot up your PC.

Good Luck
