If you want to know if alsa is already running on your system do
'cat /proc/asound/version' or 'cat /proc/asound/cards'

If this fails, maybe it is installed but not loaded. Try executing
/etc/init.d/alsa status as root.

If this fails, then your system is not running ALSA-lib. Besides
the kernel options (see below), you need to install and add
alsa-lib to your boot sequence.

If you're familiar with kernel building, see the kernel config.
Disable OSS and enable ALSA. Do not forget to enable snd-usb-audio.
And disable Drivers/usb/usb-midi and usb-audio (both are OSS
drivers which otherwise will conflict with the ALSA snd-usb-audio

Best regards
