Just a note, probably irrelevant:
I notice this card is mentioned in /usr/src/linux-220.127.116.11/Documentation/sound
under both oss and alsa,
so I assume it should work without too much work.
The alsa entry reads
Module for C-Media CMI8338 and 8738 PCI soundcards.
mpu_port - 0x300,0x310,0x320,0x330, 0 = disable (default)
fm_port - 0x388 (default), 0 = disable (default)
soft_ac3 - Sofware-conversion of raw SPDIF packets (model 033 only)
(default = 1)
joystick_port - Joystick port address (0 = disable, 1 = auto-detect)
Module supports autoprobe and multiple chips (max 8).
I don't know if this means you have to make these settings.
I've always found ALSA absurdly complicated and off-putting,
eg the fact that sound is off by default is utterly ridiculous.
OSS was much simpler.
This is one of the many cases where Linux is getting steadily worse.
(The fact that system-config-soundcard doesn't work
unless X is running is typical.)
