xmms and alsa

I just got my sound card halfway working with alsa. Whats weird is that Xine plays video and audio files fine. Xmms and anything else doesnt. I have a Dell inspiron 8500 laptop. I followed the directions on this site. When I do modprobe snd-card-0, I get a message of unresolved symbol, and insmod faild. When I boot, I get unresolved symbol again, and when I log onto X, I get that /dev/dsp can't be initialized. So, what did I do wrong? Why can Xine make sounds, but nothing else? Is alsa not the answer for me? If you need any more infromation to answer this question, please let me know. Thanks a ton.
