The sound quality isn't great under the OSS (it chirps :-).  The ALSA drivers, however, work great for me.  YMMV

because i have found that most of them just go around in circles just
telling you the same redundant crap you already know... It's not nearly
as hard as the read me's make it sound... Install the libs, the module,
the drivers, and edit one file and do a few modprobes and that's about
all she wrote.... There is a difference in sound with the alsa drivers
vs. the oss drivers, they are significantly more powerful and much more
refined sounding...
