Make sure you have module-init-tools - the new module loading system.
*Don't* delete modutils before you install it as it'll backup modutils
to /sbin/modprobe.old etc and automatically call it if you're using a
2.4.x kernel.  If you already have Alsa installed make sure that your
libraries are at least 0.9.3b and make sure that you've run the
snddevices script with this version or later (i.e. /dev/snd should *not*
be a symlink to /proc/asound/dev).  Other than that, make sure you've
enabled your keyboard and mouse when doing the kernel compile.

I'd definately give it a shot.
