I have the same card and it works fine. Next thing to do is check the volume level, by default it's always set too low.

Check the options in xmms and make sure it's looking at the correct drive.

No, all I had to do was load the module, adjust the permissions and volume and set the module to load at boot by un-commenting the correct line in /etc/rc.d/rc.modules.

Can you hear any others sound? Maybe the trouble is around xmms?

cerberus, do "dmesg" to display the boot message and scroll through looking for anything that mentions the sound/multimedia controller and post them here.

Can you hear any sounds at all? and do you have an audio cable from the cdrom to the sound card?

Ok, try doing "depmod -ae" and then try insmod again, if that dosn't work you might need to recompile your kernel.
