Maybe that is a first hint for you:

This "book" shows you all your way though Linux...
The driver stuff can be found either in this ALSA Driver package or within your Kernel configuration. Maybe you should google how to look at your kernel config to find out weather ALSA sound is compiled into it or not, there you will find all supported drivers of your kernel, too...
