I am confused, because the handbook says the opposite:

Even though I wish to use only the right driver, the manual didn't say 
how can I find which driver is the right one except trying with 
snd_driver. It didn't even mention what drivers are there on the system. 
One might expect it at /usr/src/sys/i386/conf/GENERIC but there is 
nothing mentioning sound card.

I'd be glad to try that if you inform me what is the name of the driver 
for my card, or point me way to find this information:)

Thanks for answering my mail!
