So, I assume that alsaconf did configure the SiS built-in soundcard
correctly. Does sound itself work? What do you see if you do a "ls -l
/proc/asound/"? And what does alsa report as devices it has "seen" when
started? You can see that through:
  cat /proc/asound/devices

It looks like your chipset is supported by alsa:
So maybe it does work...
