Most recent distros will probe your hardware at boot time and configure
accordingly (at the device's defaults). If your version of ALSA supports
the card, you should be able to simply install it and let the system do
the rest.

If that happy case doesn't happen, use (as root) alsaconf to install the
card, it's pretty easy. If you have problems at that stage, ask here
again. :)

I've recently done fresh installs and updates with 64 Studio and JAD,
the hardware detection was thorough and correct. Linux
installation/configuration has come a *long* way since 1995.

Best,
