problems with alsa 1.0.5, questions about packages on slackware 10.0

i have an ibm thinkpad 600, and i know its freaking next to impossible to configure sound, but, since i have slack, i think its very next to possible.

my question would be something like this. when i boot my kernel, and the ALSA modules come up, are they PART of the kernel, or they seperate modules. i've read numeros texts and it appears i need to configure alsa so its a seperate module for it to work.

any suggestions?

yes they are seperate modules. you will need to enable sound in the kernel but everything else should be off.
