SB 5.1 Live not working with emu10k1 alsa driver in 2.6 kernel


I have put in a Creative Labs SB 5.1 Live and upgraded to kernel 2.6 (my orig distro is FC1). Since 2.6 has alsa in the kernel source, I configured them as modules and wrote my /etc/modprobe.conf as follows. I have an Intel onboard sound so that's why I put in 2 sound card configuration. However I've not been able to get any soudn at all no matter what I tried.

**********************************************************************************
include /etc/modprobe.conf.dist

**********************************************************************************

Here's my lspci -vv output and dmesg. It looks like the SB card is being recognized, but yet in dmesg I dont' see ALSA doing anything with it... Is it a problem with IRQ? I've been struggling with this for a long time. ANy help will be very much appreciated.

When I disable sound in BIOS, ALSA found no sound card. Sounds like it's never found my SB card, although lspci was showing it, and when I cat /dev/dsp0 and /dev/dsp1 I"m seeing outputs. Am I missing some config (other than modprobe.conf)? Thanks for your help!
