Nice that the sound is working now. I see that the linux headers are available
for that kernel. Would they be sufficient for what you need to do?
Kelly suggested the etchnhalf kernel, which has alsa driver 1.0.15, but I
couldn't get sounds with that one, although I used the AMD64 version of it,
rather than the x86.
Bit odd, as I have Kubuntu Dapper on the same machine, and had upgraded the
alsa driver to 1.0.15, and sounds work fine on that.
It may be worth trying the etchnhalf. The fact that it doesn't work for me,
doesn't mean it wont for you, and at least you can get the source for that
