	Are you using the alsa packages that come with Debian or are
	you using the stock packages? I'd like to try the stock ones
	to use a card from Trident (it's Trident 4DX something) and
	the only kernel releases that come with drivers for it are
	those from the 2.3 series... :-(

	I wouldn't like to use these 2.3 kernels but as I understand I
	can't use the Debian ALSA packages/modules if I compile my own
	kernel (can I)?

	BTW, what are people's opinions on this card? I've tried using
	it with 2.3.99-pre9 and its sound was terrible: *VERY* low and
	if I raised it a little bit, the sound was totally distorted,
	with the effect similar to clipping of samples. Is the sound
	level of this card that low and do I need an amplifier? I
	don't have the manuals of the card (only the card). :-(

	Anyway, I thought that that was very strange and was hoping
	that the ALSA drivers could be better.
