I'm not clear about what is actually happening. First: can you boot into
the Planet CCRMA kernel? If not (as I think is the case from your
previous emails) then installing the ALSA binary rpms from Planet CCRMA
will not help because the kernel modules are compiled for that
particular kernel. 

If you boot into the Planet CCRMA kernel then the second issue is
whether the current ALSA drivers support your particular soundcard.

Then probably your onboard card is not currently supported by ALSA.
Alsaconf looks at the pci id's of all devices and tries to match them
with the ones it knows about. The fix might be as simple as adding the
proper id to an existing driver, I would ask for more information about
your particular soundcard in the alsa-user or alsa-devel mailing lists
(did you look at the soundcard matrix in http://www.alsa-project.org/?).
