I have good news and I have bad news.
The good news i sthat you CAN use a AudioPCI with Linux...you 
are just looking in the wrong place...the sound HOWTO does not cover
this :)
The bad news is that it is comercial :(
check out www.4front-tech.com 
The AudioPCI is available with the OSS/Linux drivers...
there is also an OSS/Free set of drivers but AudioPCI
is alas, unsuported by those :(
It looks (maybe im just guessing) like Ensoniq is being a PITA and
not releacing info without NDAs and $$ so...don't expect to see a "Free"
driver soon 
(Like I said..im just uesing but..thats a good bet as to why)
