Default ALSA - Still No Sound

I still can't get sound to work. Can someone tell me what's wrong? In
addition to my earlier thread below I have INPUT_DEVICES="evdev" and
ALSA_CARDS="AC97" in my make.conf.

The following that someone suggented does nothing.
> modprobe snd-intel8x0; modprobe snd-pcm-oss; modprobe snd-mixer-oss;
modprobe snd-seq-oss

I've also tried a second sound card and alternate set of speakers. Also
nothing is muted or turned down.

According to http://kmuto.jp/debian/hcl/ my card works.
