Use kmix to set your volumes. In the kmix setup panel, make sure load volumes on start. kmix will also provide a volume control in the system tray.
Aumix also works as well. Set your volumes and then select file--> save
Thanks for your advice. KMix did the trick! Now if only I could solve my wireless networking anomaly. When look at the wireless networking applet on the panel it says that I have the following
Link Quality: 100%
Signal Strength: 3%
Noise Level: 76%
....these levels are with the laptop 6 feet away from the Linksys router.
The signal strength to Noise level ratio scares me.
