The easiest solution would be to buy a new PCI-based soundcard. By "new" I do not mean year 2005 models but soundcards like Soundblaster 64 or 128 PCI. They are effortless to make work either with OSS ord ALSA. Nowadays you should almost be able to get these cards for free.
I used a SB Awe 32 and making it work took quite a bit of time and patience. I was using OSS at that time, so with new ALSA versions you might have better luck.
