More Soundcard problems...

I've been reading the posts on the various problems concerning soundcards and FC3 but have yet to come to a solution to my own problem (or I just might be too stupid to know how to apply the other solutions). I have a SB Audigy ZS in my computer which when i run the 'soundcard detection' utility comes up with a No Soundcard detected message. I really have no clue what to do (because i'm a noob) but figured i'd supply the output for lsmod (which strangely doesn't show any snd modules being loaded). Any help would be greatly appreciated.

do rmmod emu10k1_gp
then insmod emu10k1_gp
then run alsaconfig
what happens?

Can you post /var/log/dmesg
maybe you are missing something...

BTW: Those are a lot of modules, you should be compiling more in the kernel...

the insmod command runs but cannot find emu10k1_gp. Obviously not having this is a problem but I don't now enough about linux to do anything about. Also, concerning your comment on the number of modules, I really have no experience with linux and don't quite understand how it all works... especially dealing with rebuilding the kernel and what not. If you could point to some info, I'm greatly interested in learning (I do have a programming background, sadly never spent much time in the unix/linux domain).
