    the sound card can be activated by
    # modprobe snd-emu10k1
    or
    # modprobe emu10k1

    the joystick

    # modprobe joydev
    # modprobe snd-emu10k1-gp
    # modprobe analog
    # modprobe interact


    I no longer use Debian but I think
    you can add the working commands to
    /etc/modules.conf
