Look for a rpm called kernel-sources.

Yes, YaST has a module which can setup the lilo-bootconfiguration, but 
I'd do that handish in /etc/lilo.conf. the onliy thing you hav to do is 
to copy the new kernel in /boot and ad a new section in /etc/lilo.conf, 
you could use your actueal config as template. Before writing the new 
lilo-configuration on to your hd you should build a new initrd for the 
new kernel, take a look at mk_initrd. BTW: Why don't you get the newest 
kernel-sources from 


What is the soundmodule your looking for? I could take a look in to my 
moduletree and see if it is there with the newest kernel.

What SuSE version are you using? You can find this out by typing the 

cat /etc/SuSE-release

Whitch is your actual kernel-version? Type

uname -r

to get this out.
