I still have the original problem. It's quite strange, since this didn't happen before I upgraded to squeeze.
What normally happens is that when you set the video card to 'external PCIe', when the machine boots it detects a video card installed, and then doesnt start the onboard video.

I thought from post #6 that is what happened when you set the video card to 'external PCIe'. Maybe its a bit dodgy....

Have you checked if when the SBlive! doesnt show up the intel video is enabled, and vice versa?

BTW, I'd consider trying to update the BIOS.

With regard to the "Intel HD audio" thing, it looks like cascade is right, the hdmi audio device on my graphics card clearly appears in lspci as something else entirely.

So it does seem like "intel HD audio" you are seeing is the onboard sound. I've no idea why you can't disable it. Can you post the output of this:

Code:
lspci
As to the video, if you have a core i3 or i5 which the board you have is designed for - that's why you can't disable it. It's integrated into the CPU. You disable that by selecting pci-e as the first device as you have done.

We need to know more about your hardware before any other useful suggestions can be made.

Well, I tried a SBlive! in one of my boxxen...odd results.

I always 'see' the SBlive!, but sometimes it wont play any sounds. Rebooting can fix the problem, but its random. Sometimes a single reboot will let the card play, sometimes it takes a few reboots.

BTW, the card I installed was a SBlive! 5.1 (SB0100). I might try with a different SBlive! version in the next few days.

I think I finally got it. Yes, after all these years. Thanks to Ubuntu forums. First I had to locate the name of the onboard card:
Code:
$ cat /proc/asound/modules
 0 snd_emu10k1
 1 snd_hda_intel
After that I just edited /etc/modprobe.d/alsa-base.conf like this:
Code:
options snd_hda_intel index=-2
I restarted the machine to be sure. Before I did that I had to do at least 5 restarts every time I turned on the machine and suddenly it started working every time. The trick was just to find the way how to tell the OS that I don't want it to be using disabled soundcards.
