[PlanetCCRMA] problems installing EMI2|6

I have quite a few problems and confusions with installing the EMI2|6
at the moment and I hope someone could help me clarify some things.
Apparently the thing is recognised, its name pops up on 'lsusb'.
Then I have already inserted the snd-usb-audio in modprobe.conf, and
when I restart the driver it says it loaded the snd-usb-audio module.
now when I 'lsmod | grep snd' I get:

snd_seq                64144  0
snd_usb_audio          72256  0
snd_usb_lib            17792  1 snd_usb_audio
snd_rawmidi            30624  1 snd_usb_lib
snd_seq_device         13324  2 snd_seq,snd_rawmidi
snd_intel8x0           37056  0
snd_ac97_codec         78200  1 snd_intel8x0
snd_pcm_oss            67232  0
snd_mixer_oss          25344  1 snd_pcm_oss
snd_pcm               111236  4
snd_timer              32132  2 snd_seq,snd_pcm
snd                    71812  11
soundcore              13792  1 snd
snd_page_alloc         14724  2 snd_intel8x0,snd_pcm

but I have the impression that the underscore indicates the usage of OSS.
my modprobe.conf looks like this:

alias eth0 8139too
alias snd-card-0 snd-intel8x0
options snd-card-0 index=0
alias snd-card-1 snd-usb-audio
options snd-card-1 index=1
install snd-intel8x0 /sbin/modprobe --ignore-install snd-intel8x0 &&
/usr/sbin/alsactl restore >/dev/null 2>&1 || :
remove snd-intel8x0 { /usr/sbin/alsactl store >/dev/null 2>&1 || : ;
}; /sbin/modprobe -r --ignore-remove snd-intel8x0
alias usb-controller ehci-hcd
alias usb-controller1 uhci-hcd
alias ieee1394-controller ohci1394
alias char-major-195* nvidia

what did I miss out?

I have checked whether I can find a firmware loader but I could not
find one. the only one that is there already is the one for the EMI6|2
but I suppose I need another one.
on the alsa website it was actually quite unclear how I can make a
module for this  sound card.
I think it is important to say that my 'latin' is at its end here, I
am relatively newe to all the procedures, so any help setting up the
device would be very much appreciated!!!
