User unable to chose soundcard to configure when multiple exist

Description of problem:
When multiple sound cards exist in a machine, the user is never asked which one
is to be configured.
This is especially a problem when there is an on-board soundcard. I have,
although I was not aware of it until sndconfig would not let me configure my SB
(I don't know whether to call this a bug or a missing feature)
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Have more than one sound card installed (eg., an on-board and a PCI card)
2. Run sndconfig
Actual Results: The auto-detected sound card seems to be the one listed first
in the output from lspci.
When the 'correct' sound card is already configured correctly, the test sound is
played OK, but not through the sound card that sndconfig claims to have
autodetected, but through the one already configured.
When writing that auto-detected configuration, it does not prove to be wrong
until after reboot (which is of course too confusing to be good).
# lspci |grep -i audio
