Sound driver but not ALSA for AC97


I'm runing on Slackware 10 but It does not install my sound on mainboard . Until I update to kernel 2.6.7 , sound can be heard but it not as good as in windows . I see that was soft sound driver ( ALSA or some thing like that ) but I would like to hear a better music from my machine ( it has a 5.1 speaker and in Windows it work very nice ) .

Somebody help me ?

I also have AC97 Sound on my board...

From a fresh install, typed 'modprobe trident' and it was up and running..
