[ardour-users] alsa can't find my es1371 card

Can anyone see what I might be missing here?
I'll try to be brief, but include what I know. 
I'm running 2.6.3-13mdk kernel. 
My sound works FINE from Totem.
Ardour won't work, 'cause Jack won't work, 'cause ALSA won't work.
 I just compiled and installed the 1.0.5a ALSA driver, lib and utils.

# jackd -R -d alsa
loading driver ..
creating alsa driver ... hw:0|hw:0|1024|2|48000|0|0|nomon|swmeter|-|32bit
jackd: pcm.c:690: snd_pcm_nonblock: Assertion `pcm' failed.
OK, supposedly I should be able to do something simple like:
#   aplay -D hw:0,0 test.wav
aplay: main:507: audio open error: No such device
I played test.wav from totem just to make sure it's OK.   It is.
Then I try
# alsaconf
  searching sound cards.....
  No supproted PnP or PCI card found.
Now I KNOW I've got an es1371 sound card in there!
