ubuntu ISA soundcard problem

Hi, can someone tell what and where I have to change to get sound working?
(I have ISA soundblaster 16)

When first time I installed Ubuntu I have chaged /etc/modules.conf and it worked!

I added this lines:
# additions for sb16/alsa
alias char-major-116 snd
alias char-major-14 soundcore

alias snd-card-0 snd-card-sb16
options snd-sb16 port=0x220 irq=5 dma8=1 dma16=5
alias sound-service-0-0 snd-mixer-oss
alias sound-service-0-1 snd-seq-oss
alias sound-service-0-3 snd-pcm-oss
alias sound-service-0-8 snd-seq-oss
alias sound-service-0-12 snd-pcm-oss
# end sb16/alsa additions

But after upgrading no sound again!
Seems I shouldn't change that file, but another.

So the question is what should I do?
There are some thoughts about /etc/modutils
But I don't know exactly what to do.

I am newbie to linux and of course Ubuntu, so I appreciate if give more detailed thoughts
Thanks to everybody
