the same situation

If you use a standard 2.6 kernel from sarge you don't need to recompile your kernel or add modules. They're already build in. You just need to:
Install TvTime.
Run "alsamixer"(if you don't have it install it) in terminal. There you have to point on line-in(hope you plugged audio cabble of tv tuner to the line in socket on your sound card) and press m to turn it on and next push up arrow to turn up it's volume.
Use TvTime to find the stations and try experiment a little with video and audio standards. In Poland I use PAL-B for video and PAL-DK for audio. Also turn on "volume amplification" (or something like that) in "input settings"
I don't know how to use FM tner yet but hope it's not very difficult.
