I am having trouble getting JACK control to work with Soundblaster Audigy ZS 2

Hi All
I am having trouble getting the audio to work on this computer (ACER 5570-4765 with PCM Audigy ZS 2) running Ubuntu Studio 10.10.

I can get JACK to run without errors but I am not sure if settings are correct.

For now I would just like to listen to music using Audacious but I would eventually like to record guitar using Rakarrack (I have this installed but I am having zero luck with this as well)

I am a newbie and find JACK documentation very confusing. I am starting to like Linux though.

Thanks in advance for any help

Here are a few lines from the JACK message screen if this is any help

19:13:18.734 JACK is starting...
19:13:18.735 /usr/bin/jackd -P1 -dalsa -r44100 -p1024 -n2 -D -Chw:0 -Phw:0 -S -i1 -o1 -Xraw
19:13:18.748 JACK was started with PID=2671.
