[PlanetCCRMA] FC1 ALSA fm801 driver options

I need a little guidance on the settings to go in modules.conf on an FC1
planetccrma system to get an fm801 sound card to run. The default settings
bomb out as follows...

[root@server pci]# service alsasound start
Starting sound driver snd-fm801
init_module: No such device
/lib/modules/2.4.26-1.ll.rhfc1.ccrmasmp/kernel/sound/snd-fm801.o: insmod
/lib/modules/2.4.26-1.ll.rhfc1.ccrmasmp/kernel/sound/snd-fm801.o failed
Hint: insmod errors can be caused by incorrect module parameters, including
invalid IO or IRQ parameters.
      You may find more information in syslog or the output from dmesg
/lib/modules/2.4.26-1.ll.rhfc1.ccrmasmp/kernel/sound/snd-fm801.o: insmod
snd-fm801 failed
[root@server pci]#

snd-fm801.o is really there and lspci says....

00:13.0 Multimedia audio controller: Fortemedia, Inc Xwave QS3000A [FM801]
(rev b2)
        Subsystem: Fortemedia, Inc: Unknown device 1319
        Flags: bus master, medium devsel, latency 64, IRQ 16
        I/O ports at c400 [size=128]
        Capabilities: [dc] Power Management version 1

Does anyone know what options to put into modules.conf. I've googled and
tried to analyse the source code of the driver to see what options it takes
but if anyone here knows that would be really great.

Thanks in advance
