Question Sound Card CS4235 doesnt work...

Hi, this is my first post here

The problem is, I have an ISA Cirrus Logic 4235, I tried following the steps in: S4239&module=cs4236#Inst
but cant make it work. After downloading requiered files, I try this line:
modprobe snd-cs4236;modprobe snd-pcm-oss;modprobe snd-mixer-oss;modprobe snd-seq-oss

The response is:
FATAL: Error inserting snd_cs4236 (/lib/modules/2.6.9-1.667/kernel/sound/isa/cs423x/snd-cs4236.ko): No such device

The file snd-cs4236.ko is there. I`ve also tried alsaconf, it sees the card but cant do anything, also read in other place it can be something about Quickboot in the BIOS, but didnt help.
