Did not try ATA drives there. SCSI stuff works great - Adaptec's UWSCSI320 and 
15k rpm Seagate's SCSI.

I don't think I will be much help here, because the machine I was referring to 
is being used as a server, not desktop, so I did not compile sound support.
You could try "brute force" ("If unsure, use brute force") approach - load 
every "snd_*" and watch for dmesg to see which one would work for you.
Alternatively, try questions@ - maybe someone has 5.3BETA with similar sound 
card on another architecture (ia32?).
