After Packman-update with new kernel SOUND IS GONE

Hi all!
I am quite new to Linux. After installing SUSE 10.1 I wanted to get my videos running and updated my system with several packman packages, among these a new kernel. Now my sound does no longer work. Before my sound worked fine. Now I have videos but no sound. After checking several forums and stuff I believe the problem has to do with a sound module. Apparently there are 2 ways of communication between module and kernel?

Shell command modinfo soundcore gives me this result:
# modinfo soundcore
filename: /lib/modules/
description: Core sound module
author: Alan Cox
license: GPL
alias: char-major-14-*
vermagic: SMP 586 REGPARM gcc-4.1
supported: yes
srcversion: DD426F1CCA2CC5F060F6F92
Woulld anybody out there be so kind and give me a hint what to do?

Many thanx,

What YAST tells me about sound configuration

A bit more info: When trying to re-install the soundcard with YAST, it tells me:

"kernel module snd-fm801 for sound support could not be loaded. This can be caused by incorrect module parameters including invalid IO or IRQ parameters."
And here some more info:
KDE (configuration) gives me the following info:
(...)audio devices, synth devices, midi devices, mixer devices...
All this means bohemian viallges to me...
As well I have taken out the card physically - no result.
Please help
