shoul I do get sound out of my soundcard from the point where I am now?

You don't need to do this. Linux hands the device over to
the current console owner. It may seem trivial but people
have been known (at least at universities) to run recording
apps on generally readable audio devices 8)

sndconfig doesnt know about ALSA, so it'll get rather confused if you
have the ALSA modules loaded

Its trying to load the driver (OSS) that is shipped. You've already
loaded the ALSA driver so the OSS driver cannot find any devices to
manage (ALSA owns your soundcard right now)
