Are you sure you are in the correct directory?

I unpacked my source in /usr/src so I needed to change to
/usr/src/LVM/1.0.1 before running ./configure.

(If you use tab completion it is fairly easy to avoid these problems.)

Did you read the README and INSTALL files in LVM/1.0.1? The INSTALL
file has good instructions. Try using one window to read the
instructions and another to do them.

Did you patch the kernel is instructed in PATCHES/README (step 3 in
LVM/1.0.1/INSTALL) ? You don't need to but you didn't mention it.
Anyway, your problem seems to be that you didn't add the modules for
vfat and your sound card. The kernel config program does not select
the modules you are currently using. I've made the same mistake. Try
using /var/log/dmesg, /etc/modules and lspci to work out what you need 
to add to your new kernel. There may be a better way to find out what 
you are currently using (like perl -V or apache -V), but I don't know
