no sound - just upgraded kernel - HELP!


i just upgraded my kernel from 2.4.22 -> 2.4.26, and scince the upgrade i havent gotten my sound to work, i can see my old *.22 drivers, but i thought i compiled them in on the new kernel, i was wondering if i could copy the drivers i used for *.22 over and use them for *.26? and where would i copy them to? the directory i'm in? "/lib/modules/2.4.26/kernel/driver/sound"? ...would be my guess, here some info

root@bungle:/lib/modules/2.4.26/kernel/drivers/sound# cat /etc/modules.conf

alias char-major-195 nvidia

root@bungle:/lib/modules/2.4.26/kernel/drivers/sound# slocate snd-via82xx

root@bungle:/lib/modules/2.4.26/kernel/drivers/sound# slocate soundcore

root@bungle:/lib/modules/2.4.26/kernel/drivers/sound# slocate snd-mixer-oss

root@bungle:/lib/modules/2.4.26/kernel/drivers/sound# slocate snd-pcm-oss
