Don't know how to install ALSA


Well i'll try to be self-explanatory:

I had ALSA properly installed in Fedora Core 6, I wanted to use DOSBox, so I installed oss because ALSA didn't run on it, immediatly after I installed it, ALSA stopped working. I didn't care because sound also worked with oss, but I didn't get what I wanted, and I think ALSA is better, so I wanted to reinstall it

I've tried everything, oss wrapper, reinstalling alsa, etc... but it's kind too complex for me, i don't know how to get it running, i would like someone to help me if possible.

By the way, my sound card is C-Media 9880, but I think it is also called Intel ICH7 Family (82801G) High Definition Audio Controller.

thanks in advance

alsaconf

in a terminal after installing it.
