I went through the tutorial on how to setup udev and everything, but I still have to run alsaconf everytime I boot up in order to get the sound to work. Modprobe.conf looks okay, so do you guys have any ideas about what i need to do so that my sound works without having to run alsaconf each time?
Also, I'm typically a GNOME user, but I've been trying KDE lately. It seems that KDE ties up the sound system so that only K apps work properly with sound. Apps like Xine and Rythmbox can't play sound at all.
I followed some of the Sound Troubleshooting in the UDev Wiki Document:
Told me to add these modules to rc.conf
haven't had to run alsaconf since. Hope that helps.

Maybe your sound is just muted? Do you use the alsamixer script?
Personally, I don't have any problems with sounds in KDE. You could tinker a bit with a sound system in the control center.
Run a root terminal and do a :
amixer set Master unmute amixer set PCM unmute alsamixer (set the volume you want) alsactl store echo "alsactl restore" >> /etc/rc.local
