I think alsa oss emulation is not the way to go.
The oss emulation of alsa does not have 32 bit support.

Either use the rme96xx driver, which should be part of your kernel modules
(if you have a kernel more recent than 2.4.10), or use jack.

An alternative download location for the rme96xx is
(Sorry, I changed the layout of my pages, thats why the link does not
work anymore)

I think the solution with jack is the best and most flexible one.
The solution with the rme96xx driver is the easiest one to setup
(if your distribution comes with the sound modules, that is)
