You may have to use the index option in /etc/modprobe.conf (or /etc/modprobe.d/<file>) to fix this. You probably have something like "options snd-card-0 index=0" in the current file. You should back up your modprobe.conf file before adding the new card. ANother thing that could give you trouble is if the current sound card is built into the mother board. On some mother boards, the BIOS can be configured to disable the built in sound card when it detects another sound card.
