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 

ftp://ftp.gwdg.de/linux/suse/people/mantel/next/RPM/

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 
command

cat /etc/SuSE-release

Whitch is your actual kernel-version? Type

uname -r

to get this out.
