Question ALS4000 // ALSA // Slackware 10.0


"Hi my name is gFresh and I'm a Linux noob" (well actually it's Jamie but...)

After googling for a few hours, and reading this thread
h.t.t.p.:././.w.w.w.linuxquestions.org/questions/showthread.php?s=&threadid=134753&perpage=15&highlight=als4000&pagenumber=1
I have decided I am completely lost, and I'm hoping someone here can help me out.

I'm not sure what you need to know about my box so here is a start;
PIII 800Hz,
192MB RAM,
Dual boot: Slackware 10.0 with Windows 2000 (separate physical drives)
LILO as bootloader
Sound Card is an Avance Logic ALS4000.

I have downloaded the packages on this page
h.t.t.p.:././.w.w.w.slackware.com/pb/search.php?vers=slackware-current&string=alsa Thanks to some help from a guy in my #local, the directory "/lib/modules/2.4.26/kernel/drivers/sound" now contains these;

Also it may be worth mentioning that this afternoon the guy helping me told me a whole bunch of stuff to type in which got the mixer working - I could hear changes in the volume of my speakers but still no actual "sound" from them. The computer has since been rebooted and I think all the changes he made are now gone (since I now get the following error when I type in alsamixer)
Code:
alsamixer: function snd_ctl_open failed for default: No such device
Thanks,
gFresh

** edit **
sorry about the urls, I had to get around the 5 post thing to show you guys the relevant info.

Small update;
