How do I auto load OSS emulation under ALSA (Linux Mandrake)

I would like to know what I should do to make the OSS emulation module automatically load when I start my computer. At the moment, I need to manually load it from the command line in order to make sound work in programs like Audacity and RealPlayer eg:

modprobe snd-pcm-oss

and then it works fine.

I imagine that I should add a line to the modprobe.conf file or something but I am a relative newbie to linux and find the cotents of the file confusing! My one looks like this:

options sound dmabuf=1
alias synth0 opl3
options opl3 io=0x388
options sb io=0x220 irq=5 dma=1 mpu_io=0x330
install usb-interface /sbin/modprobe usb-uhci; /bin/true

# --- ALSACONF verion 1.0.2 ---
options snd device_mode=0666
alias snd-card-0 snd-sb16
alias sound-slot-0 snd-sb16
options snd-sb16 isapnp=0
# --- END: Generated by ALSACONF, do not edit. ---

I am using Linux Mandrake 10.0.

Thanks heaps

Yeah you are not loading the OSS modules at startup.

One easy way to configure this is to go into the MCC and go into the screen which lists all of your hardware.

Click on your sound card and select "Configure Module" which should permit you to change the default driver set to OSS.
