That's the *userspace* alsa bits. He needs alsa *kernel* drivers,
which are typically included in the kernel package itself. The
currently shipping Fedora 12 kernel has (apparently) alsa 1.0.21
drivers in it. He's trying to build new alsa kernel drivers and get
them to load in preference of the older kernel-provided ones.

Don, if you run (as root) 'depmod -a', then 'modinfo snd', what does
it give as a file path to snd.ko? (actually, it would be interesting
to see what it is both before and after the depmod, particularly if it
changes -- if it does, the depmod was all that was missing).
