Hi Ralph,

You have to make a decision. It seems that now you
have the oss kernel drivers installed. In this case
alsa-lib and alsa-utils are of no use for you. So you
can adjust the volume from ksound. If you decide to
use alsa instead, (a better alternative if you ask me)
then you can use alsamixer and you can save the
default sound levels.
