Almost sounds like your selecting the sound to be built into the kernel
rather then into modules, verify that the selection your making is <M> for
modules in the sound selection section. If that's the case, then uncomment
the snd options in your conf.modules file.
Also, send me your .config file so I can take a look at it, if you don't
