Question ALSA installation on RHEL WS 3


I'm running RHEL WS release 3 (Taroon) on kernel 2.4.21-4.EL

I successfully compiled and installed ALSA (from
# driver

bzcat alsa-driver-*.tar.bz2 |tar xvf -
cd alsa-driver-1.0.6rc2
./configure --with-cards=intel8x0 --with-sequencer=yes
make install

# libraries

bzcat alsa-lib-*.tar.bz2 |tar xvf -
cd alsa-lib-1.0.6rc1
make install

# utilities

bzcat alsa-utils-*.tar.bz2 |tar xvf -
cd alsa-utils-1.0.6rc1
make install

When I try to install the module on the kernel,
modprobe -v snd-intel8x0

I get:

/sbin/insmod /lib/modules/2.4.21-4.EL/kernel/sound/acore/snd.o
Using /lib/modules/2.4.21-4.EL/kernel/sound/acore/snd.o

/lib/modules/2.4.21-4.EL/kernel/sound/pci/snd-intel8x0.o: init_module: No such device
Hint: insmod errors can be caused by incorrect module parameters, including invalid IO or IRQ parameters.

You may find more information in syslog or the output from dmesg
/lib/modules/2.4.21-4.EL/kernel/sound/pci/snd-intel8x0.o: insmod /lib/modules/2.4.21-4.EL/kernel/sound/pci/snd-intel8x0.o failed
# delete snd-ac97-codec
# delete snd-pcm
# delete snd-timer
# delete snd-page-alloc
# delete gameport
# delete snd-mpu401-uart
# delete snd-rawmidi
# delete snd-seq-device
# delete snd

Any help will be appreciated.

I try to install ALSA because my sond card is not recognized:
In /etc/sysconfig/hwconf I have:

class: AUDIO
bus: PCI

driver: i810_audio
