RedHat installing wrong driver for sound @ boot

Everytime I boot, doesn't matter what I have done, RedHat 7.3 keeps trying to install my sound card as a cs4232. It is really a cs4235. I have downloaded the ALSA drivers, compiled them, made them, and installed them. Then I went into the modules.conf file and edited it for the cs4235 (in ALSA it is the cs4236). Rebooted, and during boot RH shows installing cs4232. Tried removing the driver manually with modprobe -r cs4232 (device busy) and couldn't. So I thought, I'll stop the system from detecting new hardware, and edited SysVInit to get rid of kudzu, RE-edited modules.conf, re-booted, same problem. How can I stop this d*mn thing from seeing the sound as a cs4232??

BTW, I did search for "wrong soundcard" and "incorrect soundcard" before posting. No matches that gave me any clues.

Well, at least now the box says 'loading alsasound' when it boots. But WAY before that, it has already loaded the driver for the cs4232, so when alsa tries to get it, I guess it's already linked to a driver. I even edited sysVinit so that alsasound is the first thing in runlevel 3, still doesn't help. What is making the OS load the cs4232 sound driver?

what happens if you move the module to another directory and re-run depmod -a ?
