Sound seems to be working well as before using aumix or alsamixer

I've verified that the hardware's OK by installing Etch which worked once I'd
Running alsaconfig appeared to complete but didn't improve things- I tried
both without and with updates to modprobe.d.
Same kernel version here I think, the ISO's a few weeks old though-
20080128-23:54. Full upgrade to latest package versions doesn't improve
things, I've checked permissions etc. and don't see an obvious problem.
For the moment I'm reverting to Etch since I want this machine working- pain
though because of the way the kernel crashes when it sees a serial break. I'll
grab a clean Lenny ISO in a few days and at the very least will try to monitor
