I am interested in Brian's original question. Why would you want to use Alsa? What advantages does it have?

Believe it or not, I had never heard of alsaconf before! :-) My guess would be because it isn't installed by default with "make install"... I'll check it out and eventually include it in further alsa-driver packages.
In the meantime, there are instructions and links on how to configure modules.conf here : http://freshrpms.net/docs/alsa/
Really? That's incredible. It's a fairly simple script; it takes several readings and guesses at a /etc/modules.conf modification, and it usually guesses pretty accurately. It's a really nice thing.
Under RH8/9 the FreshRPMs versions of Alsa have had alsaconf, but it had a slightly-broken set of startup scripts. (/etc/rc.d/init.d/asound, etc). Nothing big; just a little bug that only makes it iffy the first time around.
But I noticed that there's no "tools" RPM on FreshRPMS- there is on other ones, but the version numbers don't match up, so I didn't want to risk it. I thought maybe it was moved to the "utils" RPM, but it's not in there.
Someone suggested I rebuild from an SRPM, but that didn't cause it to magically appear, either. :) No biggie- I Googled for someone else's /etc/modules.conf file who also had an SBLive, and it worked on the first pull.
Someone else mentioned that it's part of the development tree; somewhere in the vast collection of files that eventually make it to the RPM, alsaconf exists, somewhere. But unfortunately I don't have any details- I don't dabble in the affairs of kernel drivers- they're quick to anger and...how's that old line go?
