You need to change your /etc/modules.conf to load both sound drivers
when ALSA starts (this is an alsa configuration issue), this example
could be a starting point (replace the section you have and adjust the
name of the drivers you need according to your hardware - make a backup

After changing the file do a "/sbin/depmod -a" and restart the sound
  /etc/rc.d/init.d/alsasound stop
  /etc/rc.d/init.d/alsasound start
