Yes it works but you need OSS (non-free, no source) sound drivers
or, since a few months now, the new ALSA drivers (version 0.5.8+, the
one in ___woody___).
I have the exact same motherboard and the drivers included in the standard
kernel don't work... :(
I like better the last option (ALSA), even if it needs a compiling the
modules if you don't use one of the precompiled kernels.
If you are running kernels 2.2.13/14 you have a binary .deb
Last time I checked a 2.2.17 version was not available.
You also need (from woody)
If you want/need to compile the modules grab alsa-source_0.5.8+ (remember
to enable the OSS compatibility layer though)
Hope it helps, rgds,
