Because alsaconf is not able to find any modules.
You' need to compile sound card modules for your kernel. Either download, compile and install alsa drivers from ftp://ftp.alsa-project.org/pub/drive...1.0.5a.tar.bz2 or get the apporpiate packages which are made for kernel 2.6.7 using swart.
I had this problem after installing the 2.6.7 kernel as well. I installed the alsa-drivers in /testing/packages/linux-2.6.7/ alsa-driver-1.0.5a_2.6.7-i486-1.tgz and after rebooting everything worked fine.
