try alsaconf?

One thing that might work is alsaconf. You can type this command from console mode or from a console window in XWindows.

Depending on your kernel version, the kernel may have already had support for that card. I think 2.6.31.x is when the kernel started including the driver. I'm not sure if the two would conflict.
