[Sound] Newbie, please help: RH8.0 and no sound on Hoontech Digital XG (Yamaha YMF-754)

Dear Linus experts!

I recently decided to trash my Windows 2000 Server installation in favour of
Linux. And I must say, that I really understand why you are so excited about
Linux (or Unix in general)! It's just such a good feeling to have this kind
of power at your fingertips - at almost no cost! The cost is, of course, the
quite steep learning curve being a newbie on this field.

OK, to the point now. Since I use my server as an advanced jukebox (Apache,
PHP, MySQL), it worries me that I cannot get my soundcard to work! I've
spent countless hours on the net trying to figure out how to do it, but so
far with absolutely no success.

I really, really need help on this one, I'm simply stuck!

I don't exactly know what information to provide, but having read about
similar problems, I hope this will help:

I compiled and installed 0.9.0rc7 alsa driver, utils, libs and tools, as
described on www.alsa.org:

$ ./configure --with-cards=ymfpci --with-sequencer=yes
$ make
$ make install
$ ./snddevices
$ chmod a+rw /dev/dsp /dev/mixer /dev/sequencer /dev/midi
$ modprobe snd-ymfpci
$ modprobe snd-pcm-oss
$ modprobe snd-mixer-oss
$ modprobe snd-seq-oss

When I run /sbin/sndconfig I get the following error:

The following error occurred running the modprobe program:

lib/modules/2.4.18-24.8.0/kernel/drivers/sound/ymfpci.o: init_module: No
such device
/lib/modules/2.4.18-24.8.0/kernel/drivers/sound/ymfpci.o: insmod
/lib/modules/2.4.18-24.8.0/kernel/drivers/sound/ymfpci.o failed
/lib/modules/2.4.18-24.8.0/kernel/drivers/sound/ymfpci.o: insmod
sound-slot-0 failed

This error comes when sndconfig tries to play the sample sound. It
identifies the card alright.

Other output:

A final question: What should I do to have the soundcard work at startup?

Any help will be very much appreciated, thank you
