alsa & /proc/asound

I'm trying to install alsa without success.

The short install & faq coming with it tell me to check some information
from /proc/asound subdirectories,
but I don't have a /proc/asound directory.

What have I overlooked?

Kind reGards,
Hwyl fawr,


1. ALSA Sound Problems - /proc/asound/dev ?

I'm trying to install the ALSA 0.5.2 sound drivers on
an IBM Thinkpad 600 with a Crystal Semiconductor
CS4232 (base system is SuSE 6.3).  Everything looks
fine until I get to section 4.6 of the the ALSA mini-howto.
I'm supposed to have a /dev/snd/ directory but instead
I have a symbolic link to /proc/asound/dev, which
doesn't seem to exist.

What am I doing wrong and how do I fix this?
