Actually I just tried that (opensound drivers) a few hours ago and for 
some reason it did not work :P  It gave timeout errors of some kind (I 
could reinstall if your interested) and didn't work at all.  I am 
willing to test anything to get support working though and could 
possibly even give a remote shell with root access for the next week or 
so.  After a week I don't how much net access I will have for a long time :P
