Alsa and Audigy 2

Ok, I tried to install Alsa driver for my audigy 2. I followed the instruction on alsa's website. After I installed the alsa-driver, alsa-lib, and alsa-utils packages, the instruction says to insert the modules into the kernel by

# modprobe snd-emu10k1;modprobe snd-pcm-oss;modprobe snd-mixer-oss;modprobe snd-seq-oss

My question is where should I do the modprobe? I tried do the commands at /sbin and ././alsa-utils-0.9.6. I got the same err message:

modprobe: Can't locate module snd-emu10k1
modprobe: Can't locate module snd-pcm-oss
modprobe: Can't locate module snd-mixer-oss
modprobe: Can't locate module snd-seq-oss

Thanks a lot for your help!

I saw on the Gentoo user's list that to get the Audigy 2 to work, you need the CVS version, not the stable for it to work. Download and compile that, then try it.
It worked, thank you.
