ac97+alsa problems

I'm having some trouble with the sound. When I'm trying to play a song(.mp3) the soundreproduction is irregular. The sound repeats itself many times before it "moves on". It's kind of hard to explain, especially when I'm not so good at English. For example if a song should sound like "pling-plong" I hear at least twenty plings before I hear the first plong. I have installed alsa's drivers v.0.9.1(driver,lib,tools,utils). I have an ac97 sound card integrated in a via8233 southbridge and I'm using mpg321 and mp3blaster to play my mp3's.

My /etc/modules.conf:
# --- BEGIN: Generated by ALSACONF, do not edit. ---# --- ALSACONF verion 0.9.0 ---
alias char-major-116 snd
alias snd-card-0 snd-via82xx
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
options snd major=116 cards_limit=1 device_mode=0666
options snd-via82xx index=0
# --- END: Generated by ALSACONF, do not edit. ---

snd 27268 0 [snd-pcm-oss snd-mixer-oss snd-via82xx snd-pcm snd-timer snd-ac97-codec snd-mpu401-uart snd-rawmidi snd-seq-device]
soundcore 3556 4 [snd]
snd-page-alloc 4224 0 [snd-via82xx snd-pcm]

I hope you understand my problem, and manage to solve it to
