I tend to think this wasn't it. Before I did the kernel and module compile and the module_install, I had sound working. So the modules had to be there. Also, I only have one modules directory, /lib/modules/2.4.18-4GB, which is correct for the SuSE default kernel I have installed. I will try doing a refresh of the alsa files off my install CDROM again, and see if that helps. If not, I will go to alsa-project.org and get the modules there.

Well, I could see where this would be a useful feature, if one were aware of it. Unfortunately, I wasn't aware of it and did not take appropriate measures. Is this a feature of the normal linux kernel makefile modules_install, or is it a SuSE tweak?
