difficulty recognizing echoaudio soundcard
output of /sbin/lspci is:

I assume the problem is with "02:0a.0 Multimedia controller: Motorola: Unknown device 3410"
I am running RedHat9, 2.4.20-19.9
I've googled this quite extensively, which is what led me to here. I have an echoaudio Mia pro audio card, and I keep getting "error while initializing the sound driver. device /dev/dsp can't be opened (no such device)". There's a driver for this card and a how-to at the URL firstname.lastname@example.org/ea.html. I've gone through the full ALSA driver installation procedure listed there, and installed alsa-lib and alsa-utils with no error. In fact, ALSA's mixer runs, but of course I get no output due to the badly configured soundcard.
sndconfig doesn't help because this soundcard isn't listed. I have verified that /lib/modules/2.4.20-19.9/kernel/sound/pci/echoaudio exists, so doesn't that verify the module's properly installed?
Any suggestions how i can make RH9 recognize this card? I spoke to the manufacturer, who pointed me to the ALSA page mentioned above, but that's all they knew.
