sound module - setting initial volume

Hello, out there

I wonder if it's possible to set an initial volume that the sound-driver -
if loaded as a module - uses at the time being (re)loaded.

Currently the volume is set to 90 percent that - because I compiled sound
support as a module and I use kerneld of course :-) - nearly blows me away
if I want to do anything sound-related and the sound-module is _not_ loaded
and therefore has to be loaded by kerneld (and sets initial volume compiled
in it ... got my problem).

Thanks in advance for anything that helps me in solving this
