Anyway check and make sure that your /etc/modules.conf file is being
modified correctly to contain the details of the sound modules needed.
Check before you run sndconfig again to see if the file is getting lost.
i.e. your rebooting and something is replacing the modules conf. You run
sndconfig which adds what you need and you can play away. But next
reboot it's all lost again.
Here's and example of whats in mine.
alias sound-slot-0 es1370
post-install sound-slot-0 /bin/aumix-minimal -f /etc/.aumixrc -L
>/dev/null 2>&1 || :
pre-remove sound-slot-0 /bin/aumix-minimal -f /etc/.aumixrc -S
>/dev/null 2>&1 || :

If the above failes and you still have kudzu enabled as one or your
services for your runlevel the try removing /etc/sysconfig/hwconf. Then
when you reboot kudzu will have no data and probe for devices.
