Hmmm, which version of alsa-driver do you have installed?
It appears to be there in the current version:

# rpm -q alsa-driver-2.4.19-1.ll
# rpm -q -l alsa-driver-2.4.19-1.ll|grep virmidi

What error message are you getting?

Make sure you have enough configuration space in /etc/modules.conf for
the additional virtual soundcard (that is, the "snd_cards_limit="
parameter for the "options snd" line is one more than the number of
hardware cards you currently have installed).
