Your local Linux User Group (LUG) might be some help. Other options include
paying a developer to make it Just Work (tm), using a different driver
(proprietary, non-free OSS, OSS, etc.), using a similar OS that might support
it better (FreeBSD, etc., but the chances are poor), and also just using a
different soundcard or USB sound device.
Before all that, reinstalling from scratch and going through the appropriate
docs, accounts from other users, and How-Tos STEP-BY-STEP would probably be
worth it too: I know I always skim those things, and cost myself more time
and trouble than I need ;)
