Soundblaster Audigy LS not working (detected OK?)

I have an onboard VIA sound chip which I am upgrading to a Soundblaster
Audigy LS PCI card - I have disabled the VIA onboard chip in BIOS and am
trying to get the Audigy card to work.  No luck...

The card uses the snd-ca0106 driver, which is compiled as a module in my
kernel.  I used 'alsaconf' to set it up:

It told me:

"Following card(s) are found on your system:
    ca0106 Creative Labs SB Audigy LS"

which seems promising.

The following screens seems to show success, but when it tries to load
the driver at the end, the following appears after "Loading driver", but
before "Setting volumes":

    ACPI: PCI Interrupt 0000:01:08.0[A] -> Link [LNK3] -> GSI 5 (level, low) -> IRQ 5
    Model 100a Rev 00000000 Serial 100a1102
    AC'97 0 does not respond - RESET
    AC'97 0 access is not valid [0x0], removing mixer.
    CA0106: probe of 0000:01:08.0 failed with error -5

and sound won't work, even after a reboot.

Some ALSA info:

# cat /proc/asound/cards 
--- no soundcards ---
# cat /proc/asound/devices 
 33:       : timer
# cat /proc/asound/version 
Advanced Linux Sound Architecture Driver Version 1.0.9rc2  (Thu Mar 24 10:33:39 2005 UTC).

What's wrong here?  Any suggestions?
