Question Md5044 tv card not auto detected in mandrake 10.0 c kernel 2.6.3

I've given up figuring this out myself. I have a Medion md5044 tv card that should be supported under video4linux But still the system is refusing to detect it. Ive tryed to modprobe and edit the modules.conf. but still it wont show up. I know that the system is in contact with the card because when I run lspci I get the following output:

00:00.0 Host bridge: Intel Corp. 82815 815 Chipset Host Bridge and Memory Controller Hub (rev 02)
00:01.0 PCI bridge: Intel Corp. 82815 815 Chipset AGP Bridge (rev 02)

02:00.1 Display controller: ATI Technologies Inc Radeon R350 [Radeon 9800] (Secondary)
[root@localhost root]#

But when I run xawtv I still cant get picture or sound. I must be doing something wrong but what?

in modules.conf I'v added the following:

alias char-major-81 videodev
alias char-major-81-0 saa7134
options saa7134 card=9 tuner=38

but when i run modprobe saa7134 card=9 I gen no output what so ever.

I'm scratching my hair here Please help me. I'm new to linux

By the way I know this is suppose to work because I had the card working under a deferent distro mandraker 8 I think it was.

anyway please help me.
