What modules do I need exactly? I have the emu10k1 and soundcore, and they 
load fine, but I get only strange sounds out of my speaker.
Also cat /dev/sndstat returns No such device!
On my old distro the sound worked fine, using alsa, but for the same reasons
Jesse stated above, I'd rather not use it on my LFS system.
