ALSA sound driver problem

I have an on board sound card. I was able to configure it using the alsa drivers. But the problem is that it doesn't work till i give a mod command -

/sbin/modprobe snd-via82xx;
/sbin/modprobe snd-pcm-oss;
/sbin/modprobe snd-mixer-oss;
/sbin/modprobe snd-seq-oss;
Is there a way by which it will get loaded when u switch on the machine. I tried adding an entry in rc.local. But it didn't work.

Thanks in advance

You just need to edit the /etc/modules.conf page in RH

Comment out anything you see from the old OSS stuff, and then check out to see what the needs to be inserted in the /etc/modules.conf file
