In Asus driver pack have read me-file where are instructions:

1. Run './configure' script.

2. Run 'make'.

3. Run 'make install'.

4. Run the './snddevices' script to create new sound devices in /dev directory.
Skip this step, if you have a kernel with the DEVFS support.

5. Edit your /etc/modules.conf (see the kmod support section below).

6. Run 'modprobe snd-xxxx' where xxxx is the name of your card.

You don't need asus drivers. Use alsa instead. There's many how-to around.
