Here's my modprobe.conf section for ALSA.  I have an Audigy 1, so it 
should be similar:

alias sound-slot-0 snd-emu10k1
alias snd-card-0 snd-emu10k1
alias char-major-116 snd
options snd cards_limit=1
alias char-major-14 soundcore
alias sound-service-0-0 snd-mixer-oss
alias sound-service-0-1 snd-seq-oss
alias sound-service-0-3 snd-pcm-oss
alias sound-service-0-8 snd-seq-oss
alias sound-service-0-12 snd-pcm-oss

I'd also second the suggestion of building ALSA as modules.
