I had exactly the same mainboard and it worked using 'device pcm' in my
kernel. But my sound was terribly bad, kind of distorted. Try 'mixer pcm
75' and it should work somehow better. I actually bought a new one,
becauce I had really big problems with this mainboard and I would
definitley not recommend anybody to buy this one.
