I was just looking for my Gigabyte board yesterday. I have the ac97 on 
the via vt82xxx southbridge. Everything I found said that I have to 
recompile the kernel to incorporate the proper support for that 
particular sound chip. I could install as a module, but the kernel had 
to support it. One instruction I found, and can not seem to get back to 
it today, said to run "modinfo soundcore" at the prompt. If it came back 
ok, then I could install as a module, if not, there was a whole bunch of 
files I had to compile into the kernel to make it work. I decided that 
was more time than I was willing to put into it. It may be the same deal 
with that chipset as well. Here is the link to some of the info I got, I 
know it is not your chipset, but might get you to the right place.
