OK, I canwill add what you suggest:

alias snd-card-0 snd-ca0106
options snd-card-0 index=0
options snd-ca0106 index=0

alias snd-card-1 snd-hda-intel
options snd-card-1 index=1
options snd-hda-intel index=1

here is what is already there, should I modify it in any way
(or delete parts of it?)

options snd cards_limit=8                                                                         
alias snd-card-0 None                                                                            
options None index=0                                                                              
alias snd-card-1 None                                                                             
options None index=1                                                                              
alias snd-card-7 snd-usb-audio                                                                    
options snd-usb-audio index=7  

and where is this explained?
