>From the Sound-HOWTO :

or too quiet. Markus Gutschke ( found this
solution. Use a line in your /etc/conf.modules file such as the
^^(actually it's modules.conf)

options sound dma_buffsize=65536 && /usr/bin/setmixer igain 0 ogain 0 vol 75

This causes your mixer program (in this case setmixer) to be run
immediately after the sound driver is loaded. The dma_buffsize
parameter is just a dummy value needed because the option command
requires a command line option. Change the line as needed to match
your mixer program and gain settings.
