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.

I have run alsaconf, alsamixer, alsactl store etc.
I do get some sound so speakers work.
i did cat somefile > /dev/dsp and i get the static/computer noise as i should.
When i try to play mp3`s, ogg`s, or videos i get the first seconds worth of sound which is repeated 3 or 4 times before sound just stops, it doesnt matter what file format it is. This happens in XMMS, XINE, NOATUN.
did you try www.alsa-project.org ?
I have the same boundary conditions: SIS 7012, kernel 2.6.7 (not the one from slackware, it is self compiled) and it works!
I took a look at ALSA doc and everything is ok!
You just need to compile soundcore as module
nothing else ..
and after that you should download and install : alsa-driver , alsa-lib and alsa-utils
I noticed you don't have snd and soundcore loaded. Try using alsaconf and see if that works. It should make the necessary comments in modules.conf and get snd and soundcore modules loaded upon rc.alsa running at start up.
Something else that might help would be to disable onboard nic and just focus on the sound till you get it working, then enable the nic in bios again. May also help to disabble pnp in bios as well and let linux probe and set on it's own without using bios settings (don't know about this one, but read it somewhere?).
