I didn't want to repeat myself because there is a message trail on PLUG
about this, mostly me writing to myself but my specific case is that I am
obviously using SUSE 10 and it failed to load my sound modules. I am using
a SB audigy card. I was able to run alsaconfig after boot and get sound. I
then used kmix to set levels and select the fact that I am using digital
output. All was fine until the next reboot and then nothing until I did
this process again.

To make a long story short after trying to figure out why I ended up
adding the base sound card module load in /etc/sysconfig/kernel in which I
discovered has a place to load modules that were not hardware detected

I also added my PCHDTV3000 cards dvb module there as it would not load

This works but I don't think it is really the proper way to do it and that
brought out my question of just how does the system evaluate HW and why
was it not discovering mine at boot when it works fine being manually
