Can you clarify the question? What do you mean by "*without* converting
the whole machine from OSS to ALSA"? Do you mean you willing to convert
to the ALSA drivers but want to continue to use OSS applications? Or do
you mean you don't want to convert to ALSA at all? You obviously can't
use ALSA+OSS emulation if your not willing to convert to the ALSA
drivers since basically OSS emulation is just a few ALSA modules you
load *in addition* to the ALSA hardware drivers that allow ALSA to
provide an OSS emulation layer to OSS only applications.

Of course, OSS drivers are still available in 2.6, even though they are
deprecated. You can just continue to use these just like you always
have in 2.4, no ALSA at all.
