more kernel woes, this time with sound

Okay so here goes. I finally gave up trying to up2date or yum arjan's 
2.6.0-test kernels. I downloaded the RPMs from

and RPM happily installed. One thing I noticed was that the version 
numbers and dates on his updated modutils, kernel-utils and so on were 
lower than the ones in FC1. Does this mean that his updates are already in 
FC1? Or should I downgrade back to the older versions?

Anyway - So I get 2.6.0-test9 installed from the RPM. Sound doesn't work 
anymore. Specifically, the new kernel doesn't auto-load the modules for my 
sound card (according to lspci: "ALi Corporation M5451 PCI AC-Link 
Controller Audio Device", which under 2.4.X uses the "trident" module, and 
AFAIK uses "snd-trindent" under 2.6.X).

I've already gone through and created an appropriate /etc/modprobe.conf, 
etc. The relevant lines from that:

alias sound-slot-0 snd-trident
alias sound-card-0 snd-trident
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

Now though, even when I reboot back into 2.4.22 (the stock FC1 kernel) the 
sound modules don't load. Any ideas why they don't load automatically? And 
any ideas why it's stuffed up my 2.4.22 as well (they're two kernels 
booting into the same FC1 installation).
