pmam,

~/ means the currently logged in users /home directory.
If the user is root, then it means /root, The # prompt says you were root. Normal users have a $ prompt.

Capture, means to do with inputs to the PC.
Playback means outputs from the PC.

It should not matter if the drivers are <*> built in or <M> as long as they are loaded.
The module auto loading is not perfect. If you use modules, you may need to name the modules in /etc/conf.d/modules.
Modules listed there are modprobed at boot time.

Code:
root #cd /usr/src/linux
root #cp .config ~/kernel-config-`uname -r`
may give misleading results.
Code:
cd /usr/src/linux
changes to the kernel pointed to by the linux symbolic link.
Code:
cp .config ~/kernel-config-`uname -r`
then makes a copy of that kernels .config file under the name kernel-config-`uname -r`.
Now, `uname -r` is the version of the currently running kernel, which need not be the kernel pointed to by the symlink.

Making USB devices work together is a separate problem. You know the Easycap works, the drivers it needs, and how to tell players that they will find the audio on card1, not the default card.

Windows XP is a part of the problem, not a part of the solution :)
