Have you tried running alsaconf? Try it, if it works, follow the instructions on the page I gave you from "ALSA Initscript" on.
Basically, there are two ways to get alsa to work, with the alsa-driver (which is what I did, as I used genkernel) or within the kernel (which I'll let someone else explain). If you used genkernel while installing, emerging the two mentioned packages should be enough.

Glad to hear
Now turn up the music! Oh, and to change the volume/etc., use "alsamixer", and "alsactl store" to store those settings.

is it required to use that for controlling the volume or can i just use the default volume controll?

You can use any volume control you wish, you'll find that there are many ways in linux to do the same thing. What I mentioned is just what I do in gentoo, as I have a very minimal environment, but use whatever suits you
