That was to check if the card is still able at all to function properly, 
right? In that case: I booted with a Knoppix CD I found somewhere, and 
I got sound just fine...

Good news, I guess... Still, alsaconf does not detect the thing, 
although I've used it a thousand times before to do so. Something must 
be wrong with my configuration, but in the pile of alsa configuration 
files that are spread around the system, I really can't find my way 

If perhaps nobody else could point me in the right direction, I guess 
I'd better bother alsa-user with it, instead of this list...

Thanks for the help in any case,
