Indeed, there is an awful lot of advice out there about how to get the
600 / 600e's sound working, and everyone's advice seems to be a little
different. I burnt off three more hours this eve trying the above
thinkwiki suggestions for my 600e, plus various other ALSA module
blacklist / modprobe voodoo, all to no avail. Another machine that does
not work with ALSA....

Actually, the root problem is probably deeper then ALSA (IRQ conflict?)
as in its current state, not even USB audio works for me. USB audio has
*always* worked on my other machines, without exception.
