Ubuntu 8.10 audio drivers for via vt1708s?

I have looked and cannot seem to find them. The ones that I have found were for Ubuntu 7.04 and would no even install e_e Can anyone help me?

Also, if I cannot get that to work, are there drivers for Creative Blaster Audigy SE ( that support either 5.1, 6.1, 7.1)

Go to System--> Administration--> Hardware Drivers. That is the application to use for seeking out proprietary drivers (as long as it detects your hardware).

Post the output of:
lspci | grep Audio
If your card is correctly detected, go to System -> Preferences -> Sound and try selecting different drivers like OSS and ALSA, then click the "Test" button to see if you get results.
