off the top of my head, and if I'm reading your post right, I would change the module:diabled to module: enabled in the conf file

or try manually loading the module - "modprobe -a cm8738"

[edit] sorry - I am tired, and I did read this wrong - the modproe -a might work, but you will need to find out the correct module name - I'm not sure it is the same as the model number

were would i locate this conf file?
this is from the linux driver set i tryed this modprobe thing and it dont work

1. Before first time to run the driver, create module dependency by
'depmod -a'

2. To install the driver manually, enter 'modprobe cmpci'.

3. Driver installation for various distributions:
a. Slackware 4.0
Add the 'modprobe cmpci' command in your /etc/rc.d/rc.modules you can start the driver automatically each time booting.

b. Caldera OpenLinux 2.2
Use LISA to load the cmpci module.

c. RedHat 6.0 and S.u.S.E. 6.1
Add following command in /etc/conf.modules:

alias char-major-14 cmpci

Some functions for the cm8738 can be configured in Kernel Configuration
or modules parameters. Set these parameters to 1 to enable.

spdif_loop: Enable S/PDIF loop, this route S/PDIF-in to S/PDIF-out
four_ch: Enable 4 channels mode, rear-out or line-in will output
the same as line-out.
rear_out: Enable this if you have independent rear-out jacket on
your sound card, otherwise line-in will be used as
modem: You will need to set this parameter if you want to use
the HSP modem. You need install the pctel.o, the modem
driver itself.
