ATI HDA Audio ALC861 codec and alsa on slackware

Okay I`ve seen some posts on this subject,yet I can`t get sound to work on my toshiba satellite l30-115.I`ve read this post
and trying anything suggested didn`t help.So here are my questions:
#1 I installed alsa exactly as suggested on install guide says I should edit modprobe.conf but the file`s use is deprecated.So which file should I use(create) for slackware instead?

#2 Using modprobe.conf and adding "options snd-hda-indel modell=..." wouldn`t help as I cannot play any sounds.I always check alsamixer to see whether I need to unmute some channel.
here is some info: I`m using slackware 12
