Follow the instruction in this HOWTO:

http://www.linuxdoc.org/HOWTO/mini/Soundblaster-AWE.html

sndconfig is a front-end program, which means .. yes, it can fail.

Check out "etc/modules.conf" or "etc/conf.modules"
In there there is a complete list of sounddriver modules.Find the appropriate module.At the begining of "modules.conf" are some lines like this(not sure):
alias major off
sound off
midi off
Change them like this:
alias major "the name of the module"
sound on
midi on
My configuration is like this(i have SBLIVE):
alias major emu10k1
sound on
midi on
I hope it works.

Even THough I have ended up mostly solving it on my own, I will give points to kartebi..... What I ended up doing is downloading all of the Sound Blaster stuff, but I also downloaded and installed the new sndconfig (from Red Hat 6.1).....

It is:
alias char-major "module"
sound "module"
midi on
Its the easiest way for me.(I use SuSE Linux 6.3)
