I have just changed from kernel 2.0.30 to 2.0.31 and have som problem geting my soundcard to work.
When I compiled my old kernel I choose cs4232, but I can't find it when I do a make config or make menuconfig.
But I have a file named cs4232.c in my /usr/src/linux/drivers/sound/ Can someone tell me what to do??

It seems to be in 2.0.31. Did you patch or got a new tar.gz?

I get a new one when I made a ftp upgrade from RedHat 4.2 to RedHat 4.9. At frst It seems to exist. But I get some errors during the compiling so a did a make mrproper before I made a make config, and this time it did'nt exist.

Do you get any sound configuration option at all when you do make config?
Did you run make config as root? If you don't it won't make the configure sound program.
Do you have a /usr/src/linux/drivers/sound/configure executable?
Remove it if it is there, it might be corrupted and make will built another one.
If it still doesn't ask you for sound. Try to run configure from the /usr/src/linux/drivers/sound directly. Cd there and run ./configure.

and try again..
