My /etc/modules looks like this on my U5/10 and my recently acquired U60:

# /etc/modules: kernel modules to load at boot time.
# This file contains the names of kernel modules that should be loaded
# at boot time, one per line. Lines beginning with "#" are ignored.


I still use aumix (OSS). You may not need the last module with alsa.
I'm not sure about other mixers, but aumix looks a bit strange with
Vol and CD always at 100% while controling the sound with Pcm and 
Line1 respectively.

Also, using the external speaker out and line out, I disconnect the
internal speaker which I find much too loud.

Can't help here. I replaced a xvr600 (I couldn't get it to work with
Debian) with a Creator 3D, which works fine. I do have another one, 
but haven't even tried installing it.
