ALSA, nforce2, and debian...once again

I have seen a few posts on this topic but none seem to solve my ALSA problem with my mobo (specs in sig).

I've followed every post I could find on this problem and I can't get it to work with xmms or any other player for that matter. The alsa server does run find (works in gamix and alsamixer) but when I try to play any sound file in xmms.....
using the output I get "couldn't open audio" and when I try to normal oss lib it just hangs and does nothing.

here's and lsmod | snd out...
snd_intel8x0 33068 2
snd_ac97_codec 59268 1 snd_intel8x0
snd_pcm_oss 48168 1
snd_mixer_oss 16640 1 snd_pcm_oss
snd_pcm 85384 2 snd_intel8x0,snd_pcm_oss
snd_timer 23172 1 snd_pcm
snd_page_alloc 11144 2 snd_intel8x0,snd_pcm
gameport 4736 1 snd_intel8x0
snd_mpu401_uart 7296 1 snd_intel8x0
snd_rawmidi 23204 1 snd_mpu401_uart
snd_seq_device 7944 1 snd_rawmidi
snd 50660 11 snd_intel8x0,snd_ac97_codec,snd_pcm_oss,snd_mix er_oss,snd_pcm,snd_timer,snd_mpu401_uart,snd_rawmidi,snd_seq_device
soundcore 9824 2 snd

and my module.conf..
### update-modules: start processing /etc/modutils/alsa
alias char-major-116 snd
alias snd-card-0 snd-intel8x0
alias char-major-14 soundcore
alias sound-slot-0 snd-card-0
alias sound-service-0-0 snd-mixer-oss
alias sound-service-0-1 snd-seq-oss
alias sound-service-0-3 snd-pcm-oss
alias sound-service-0-8 snd-seq-oss
alias sound-service-0-12 snd-pcm-oss

### update-modules: end processing /etc/modutils/alsa

### update-modules: start processing /etc/modutils/alsa-base
above snd-pcm snd-pcm-oss
above snd-mixer snd-mixer-oss
above snd-seq snd-seq-oss

### update-modules: end processing /etc/modutils/alsa-base

thanx for your help.

Ok, it seems to NOT work in xmms. I can play audio in totem movieplayer but that's it.
Also, I hear that nasty buzz sound in the background. This seems to be a popular problem on these boards. It was fine in windows XP but under linux it's nasty
