Ummm, Im not much of an expert on this matter, but if you have system sound but have issues related to cds, it may be necessary to plug the (normally supplied with drive) audio cable from the back of your Samsung DVD/CD-RW to your Soundblaster Audigy Card. If this dosent work, or you've already done it, I'm no help. As for the crashing of UT, can't help you. sorry.

Windows and Linux play audio CDs differently, Kscd has an option to not need to the analogue cable but you need to explicitly set it and XMMS has a plugin to make it work. Just because something worked in Windows doesn't mean it'll work in linux.

Ordinarily you get sound without the audio wire to the motherboard within Windows, but in Linux, due to lack of compatibility with specific hardware setups, you need the cable. If you don't have the cable, you can download plugins or set up most media applications to operate with fully working sound.
