Well, that's the thing - you have to.  

Most things expect to go to /dev/dsp and not /dev/dsp1... I have two
sound cards, so I just made sure to setup my main card as /dsp using the
module options listed also on that thread.  It is hard to make
everything bend to the non-standard, but of course it can be done.  I
would try the .asoundrc option first.
