Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

It is not going to work until modprobe works,no need to run alsaconf.If you want to get it to work first you need to see if there is any update's for your kernel and alsa.Use google and search your soundcard and mandrake 10.1 to see how someone else got it to work,and I will look around too.I can help but I don't use mandrake and they do things there own way.
also post uname -a

Lets hope so,was it the kernel rpm?If so you may need to update lilo,is that your boot loader? here is that guide; http://www.mandriva.com/security/kernelupdate
then you will need to boot into the new kernel,save your old one.you may need to rename it and then edit lilo.conf and make sure to run lilo.Once you boot into the new kernel run modprobe again and see if the module gets loaded,or mandrake may see it not sure.Then alsaconf good luck and keep us posted Take your time and read up on the process until you understand and ask any ? here
