sound woes with kernel 2.6.0 and 865 chipset
I'm running kernel 2.6.0-test4 on my Abit IS7 mobo (Intel 865 chipset).
I'm trying to get ALSA sound working, and I'm having a devil of a time
I have ALSA sound enabled in my kernel. Abit (and also Realtek, who

All of this is deeply confusing. I don't understand sound very well
anyway, and this isn't helping. If anyone who has this same hardware
and kernel could tell me how they got their sound working, I'd be
