Run lsmod, see if there are modules along the lines of snd-something loaded, if so, look for one matching your soundcard. ALSA uses a different way of accessing sound devices to OSS, so if you want a /dev/dsp, you need to additionally load snd-pcm-oss and snd-mixer-oss. As an example, these are the modules I have loaded: snd-pcm-oss 39620 1 (autoclean) snd-mixer-oss 13808 0 (autoclean) [snd-pcm-oss] snd-ens1371 12716 1 snd-pcm 66912 0 [snd-pcm-oss snd-ens1371] snd-page-alloc 6996 0 [snd-pcm] snd-timer 16036 0 [snd-pcm] snd-rawmidi 14688 0 [snd-ens1371] snd-seq-device 4388 0 [snd-rawmidi] snd-ac97-codec 43352 0 [snd-ens1371] snd 35940 0 [snd-pcm-oss snd-mixer-oss snd-ens1371\ snd-pcm snd-timer snd-rawmidi snd-seq-device snd-ac97-codec] soundcore 4388 6 [snd] One caveat, I'm still on 2.4.23, but I believe ALSA is the same.
