In my (3.4-RELEASE) kernel config I have

controller      pnp0                    # PnP support for ISA


device		pcm0

This resulted in a pcm1 device being identified at boot time, and
I then made the device files ("cd /dev; ./MAKEDEV snd1").

This works fine for me (though only playback - recording doesn't seem to
be supported with this card in 3.4).

The fine detail might vary depending on what version you are running, but
hopefully these are helpful pointers.
