Alsa & kernel 2.6.1

I just compiled the 2.6.1 kernel with alsa and sound works great but at boot up or whenever i run rc.alsa i do get this error message:
Loading OSS compatibility modules for ALSA.
FATAL: Module snd_pcm_oss not found.
FATAL: Module snd_mixer_oss not found.
What does it mean? Is this bad or can I just ignore it?

well if sound works and you get them messages then you can comment the following lines :
(put a # in front of the these lines in the rc.alsa file to look like this) :
#modprobe snd-pcm-oss
#modprobe snd-mixer-oss
