snd-seq-oss problem

I have been trying for days to get my Creative Soundblaster Live! 5.1 to work in Linux! I've tried Slackware 8.1, Debian 2.2, Redhat 7.3, Redhat 8.0 and Mandrake 9.0, and it was only in Mandrake that the sound worked, but it's only in Redhat the network worked! So right now I'm using Redhat 7.3 (8 was VERY buggy!) and just tried to install the ALSA-drivers so I can get some sound. Everything works fine until I'm gonna "insmod" snd-seq-oss. I get this error-message:

/lib/modules/2.4.18-3/kernel/sound/acore/seq/oss/snd-seq-oss.o: init_module: Device or resource busy
Hint: insmod errors can be caused by incorrect module parameters, including invalid IO or IRQ parameters
/lib/modules/2.4.18-3/kernel/sound/acore/seq/oss/snd-seq-oss.o: insmod /lib/modules/2.4.18-3/kernel/sound/acore/seq/oss/snd-seq-oss.o failed
/lib/modules/2.4.18-3/kernel/sound/acore/seq/oss/snd-seq-oss.o: insmod snd-seq-oss failed

Does anybody have an idea of what can be wrong??

I tried the command "dmesg" and at the bottom it said:

ALSA ../../../alsa-kernel/core/seq/oss/seq_oss.c:223: can't register device seq

Does that say anything to anybody??
