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.

However when I try to add it to the kernel (chmod) it came with the following errors? (do have a Ensoniq ES1371 [AudioPCI-97] (rev 8) installed!)
[root@i231170 alsa]# modprobe snd-ens1371;modprobe snd-pcm-oss;modprobe snd-mixer-oss;modprobe snd-seq-oss
/lib/modules/2.4.20-19.9/kernel/sound/pci/snd-ens1371.o: init_module: No such device
Hint: insmod errors can be caused by incorrect module parameters, including invalid IO or IRQ parameters.
You may find more information in syslog or the output from dmesg
/lib/modules/2.4.20-19.9/kernel/sound/pci/snd-ens1371.o: insmod /lib/modules/2.4.20-19.9/kernel/sound/pci/snd-ens1371.o failed
/lib/modules/2.4.20-19.9/kernel/sound/pci/snd-ens1371.o: insmod snd-ens1371 failed
It's not complaining that the hardware isn't there, but rather the driver itself. How did the install go? Did it complete without errors? Did you compile for your correct sound-card (as was shown in the how to you referred to above)?
Are you running that kernel?
Did you compile your drivers against a different kernel? Do you have soundcore loaded as module (required for ALSA, but also should have been in that how-to)?
Yeah, they aren't getting loaded. Follow the directions again in your sound card's page at alsa's website and be sure to place the info in /etc/modules.conf If you have already, feel free to post up the contents of that file:
That's really wierd... Checkout man modules.conf to see if it has any ideas for you.
Just to recap:
You can modprobe up all the modules, and sound works. But upon reboot, if you attempt to access a sound device, nothing works, and then upon further inspection, the modules are still not loaded (from modules.conf)?
I'll look around a bit to see if I can dig up any info...
Ahh, no you are good. No need to remove anything there, it should all be inter-twined
However, should you really wanna remove a module at any point, the command:
Is what you are looking for. You'll need to remove dependencies first, so for example, if you want to remove ext3, you'll first have to remove jbd
