alsa install

hi, i cant seem to find a good doc on installing the ALSA sound drivers for my sb128. there used to be a site that i would go to that had a complete walkthrough(kernel module settings, etc), but now its long gone. the most info i have found is how to compile the drivers themselves, but i cant "modprobe snd-card-ens1371", it says it cant find the module. im guessing that this has something to do with my kernel compile settings. if somebody could post a link/info on the correct kernel compilation settings, modules.conf, etc., i would be eternally grateful

my specs are:
amd atlhon 1.2ghz
256 megs pc100 sdram
soundblaster sb128 card
slackware 8 with kernel upgraded to 2.4.18
