On debian edit /etc/modutils/alsa-base (or something like that) and run 
"update-modules" as root to get the changes into /etc/modules.conf.

I've had trouble making this work under debian for quite a while (it 
used to work). I even asked here a while ago. Tonight I managed to 
figure it out:

/etc/modprobe.d/sound should be a copy of (or symlink to) 
/etc/modutils/alsa(-base). This makes the correct information show up in 

So in case anyone (including the original poster, Peter) struggles with 
this, try this...

peace, love & harmony
