ALSA - setting default soundcard

I am running SuSE 9.1 Pro, I can get sound to work perfectly through arts with KDE, by overriding the default soundcard and using hw:0,1 with ALSA. I can get sound perfectly in xmms, gaim, and xine, which is good. However, in apps where I can't use arts it uses the default in ALSA. I'd like to change this default to hw:0,1. Firstly I ran alsaconf, but that did nothing. Then I tried to set it up in YaST, no luck there.

Finally I tried using a ~/.asoundrc file which contained the following
card 0
device 1
I also tried adding:
card 0
device 1
but this didn't solve the problem. Does anyone know how I can make alsa use hw:0,1 by default?
