Angry Sound card conflict

Hi everyone.
I'm having a conflict between my Sound Card and my Audiodigital card (for music). Everything is working well under Winshit XP, for once.
In fact I installed my Mandrake 10 BEFORE I bought the audio card, and everything was working perfectly, as expected.
I have run alsaconf under root, and it says I have 3 devices :
C-Media CM8738, ICE1724 (supposed to be the audio card), and Probe Legacy ISA (non PnP).
How do I inhibit the audio card and re-activate the CM8738 ? And what is the "Probe legacy" ?
It used to work well before Linux tried to "recognize" the audio card. By the way, it's a TERRATEC PHASE22, no driver available for the moment (if any ever !).
When I start the SOUND SERVICE, it fails and says "no device found" .... what the !?#@!?

I am a newbie, so please try to be as simple as possible.
Thx in advance.

alsa is not hard by hand

Use the howto on the alsa site. If you do not understand the alsa site type lspci -v post all output. I will creat a config file for you.

everything rolling ...

I have rebooted today and guess what ? Everything is working well ! I don't understand, and yet my distrib isn't called "Win XP" !
I had the same kind of problem with my Alcatel ADSL modem, and it finally worked without my understanding.
Thanks for your help anyway, next time I promise it won't work and I will use your help !
