Unhappy alsa prob (AD1980) w/ ASUS P4XP-X board

I'm a baby newbie!! Please help!!

Slackware 9.0 full new install (no patches):

I downloaded and installed alsa 0.9.6, copied and pasted modules.conf settings from the alsa page for the AD1980. On running alsamixer I get the dreaded snd_ctl_open failed message. I then tried running the ./snddevices script and chmod a+rw on the devices in dev. still no joy.
Has anyone got alsa running on this or other ASUS board using AD1980 chip?
FYI here's my modules.conf:
# ALSA portion
alias char-major-116 snd
alias snd-card-0 snd-intel8x0
# module options should go here

# OSS/Free portion
alias char-major-14 soundcore
alias sound-slot-0 snd-card-0

# card #1
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
