Yes, I've seen that page and many many others, all very similar, and I
see what needs to be done. However, after going thru all the necessary
steps, I get to the most important one, inserting the device with
modprobe, and I get this:

[root Toshi guy]# /sbin/modprobe snd-opl3sa2
FATAL: Error inserting snd_opl3sa2
(/lib/modules/2.6.8-1.521/kernel/sound/isa/snd-opl3sa2.ko): No such
device

I have looked in that dir and the .ko file *does* exist!
What in the world am I missing??

Thanks.
