Problem with sound using Slack8.0

First off I got to say that I am a newbie to Linux, so I hope you be a little specific when you try to help.

The problem is that I don't have sound in Slack, so I searched through this forum for any answers, and found out that I will need to set the sound manually through either a kernel recompile or modprobe.

I decided to recomplie my kernel, and this is what I did:

make xconfig
make dep
make clean
make bzImage
make bzlilo

everything went fine, and when I go back to KDE the sound works, but my internet doesn't work. After I check the messages that appear once you boot up the machine I notice this:

unable to probe pcnet_cs to socet 1: not authroized

The internet works when I first install Salckware, so I don't know what is going wrong after I recomplie, and I am sure that I use the right driver for the network card.

Some info on Sound + Network Hardware:

Network: Linksys Etherfast PCMCIA card (use tulip driver in kernel config)
Sound: Crystal Fusion
Kernel: 2.2.19

I was hoping if some one has any links to show me how to do the modprobe setup of the sound or explain how to do it, or if they have any ideas on maybe how to fix the internet once I do a kernel recompile.

Also I got to point out that I don't have any other computers so if internet goes down the only way is to do a complete reinstall of slack. So I am hoping to get a couple replies before trying to do anything.

Hope someone can help.

Sorry about this, but I was looking through the forum just now, and found a way to get sound to work.

I just did:

modprobe sound
modprobe cs46xx

and that seemed to work.

But now how do I get linux to modprobe those two on startup?

Do i just add those enteris into


or is there another way?

Also I would like to say that I think I know what went wrong in my kernel complie. I forgot to do make modules + make modules_install

Thanks for any help.
