Ensoniq ES1371 AudioPCI (snd-ens1371) does not work on ASUS K50IN (BackTrack 5 R2)

I am pretty new to linux and i can't fix my soundcard problem.
As in topic i got ASUS K50IN with BackTrack 5 R2 and soundcard Ensoniq ES1371 AudioPCI (probably module snd-ens1371).
This solution is probably too hard for me, because i never compile kernel etc
