Debian squeeze soundcard problem


Yesterday I upgraded my Debian system from Lenny to Squeeze (kernel:2.6.32-5-686). Mayor problem: my extra soundcard. In Lenny I used "alsaconf" to switch soundcards; in Squeeze there's no more alsaconf.
Now I have to use pulseaudio... but i'm not familiar with that. gives me no clues.

I have an onboard soundchip and a M-Audio pci soundcard. The onboard sound is working allright, but I want to be able to switch to my M-Audio card. Pulseaudio only gives one device: the "alsa_output.pci-0000_00_11.5.analog-stereo": my onboard sound.

00:0c.0 Multimedia audio controller: VIA Technologies Inc. ICE1712 [Envy24] PCI Multi-Channel I/O Controller (rev 02)
00:11.5 Multimedia audio controller: VIA Technologies, Inc. VT8233/A/8235/8237 AC97 Audio Controller (rev 60)

Thanks, I've read this before. but it didn't help me: I've the right modules. I think the problem is in pulseaudio.
