2 sound card errors after kernel recompile. Need newbie help

I just installed slackware 9.1 and did a full install.
Sound was working fine and I ran alsamixer and 'alsactl store' to set and store my volume prefs.
Then I got the 2.6.0-test9 kernel and compiled it using the default sound options:
Sound - on
ALSA - on
debug - off
OSS API Emulation - on (all 4)
and left OSS(deprecated) off.

After I load the new kernel it says:
FATAL: Module snd_pcm_oss not found
FATAL: Module snd_mixer_oss not found

I start KDE and the sound works half the time and is static the other times.
Why is it talking about modules? -I compiled everything into the kernel so I wouldn't have to worry about modules. Is this just because it is a beta kernel?

Are the default sound options what you need?

OK, Here is my kernel config under sound:

Sound Card Support - (yes)
--ALSA (yes)
---Sequencer Support - (yes)
---Sequencer dummy client - (no)
---OSS API emulation - (yes)
---OSS Mixer API - (yes)
---OSS PCM Digital Audio API - (yes)
---OSS Sequencer API - (yes)
---Verbose printk - (no)
---Debug - (no)
---Generic devices (none)
---ISA devices (none)
---PCI devices
---Intel... (NO, this was checked by default)
---VIA82C686A/B, 8233 Southbridge (YES, I unchecked the default Intel and
checked this one. This is the only change I made to the sound area)
---ALSA USB devices (none)

The only thing I changed was the PCI device from the Intel one to the VIA 8233 chipset(I have a MSI 266pro mobo). Everything was checked to compile in the kernel and NOT as a module. This is why I don't know why it is giving module errors.

Thanks in advances.
