Getting alsa to work for emu 0404 soundcard

Could someone tell me if I can get this to work, or am I just wasting my time?

I have the emu 0404 audio card:

I would be great if I could get it to work in any way so that I could try out some linux music software. I found some information:

I don't really know what to do with this. I have alsa and alsa-firmware rmps installed on Mandrake 2008. But I get:

[charles@localhost Music]$ aplay -vv test.wav
ALSA lib confmisc.c:768parse_card) cannot find card '0'
ALSA lib conf.c:3510_snd_config_evaluate) function snd_func_card_driver returned error: No such device
ALSA lib confmisc.c:392snd_func_concat) error evaluating strings
ALSA lib conf.c:3510_snd_config_evaluate) function snd_func_concat returned error: No such device
ALSA lib confmisc.c:1251snd_func_refer) error evaluating name
ALSA lib conf.c:3510_snd_config_evaluate) function snd_func_refer returned error: No such device
ALSA lib conf.c:3982snd_config_expand) Evaluate error: No such device
ALSA lib pcm.c:2145snd_pcm_open_noupdate) Unknown PCM default
