Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

I have seen the thread you linked to which is what prompted me to upgrade my kernel. I just had a quick go at creating a sound.conf but that removed what function i did have.
I am a little short on time at the moment but the output of the commands you listed are below, and i will try and do a nv log tonight.
I don't think there is any problems with the hardware as i am able to play sound in Amarok and VLC now i have selected the card and subdevice instead of the default so i believe i just need to figure out where to make it the system default.
Just thought speaker-test -c2 -twav -Dplughw:0,9 also give audio.
I dont seem to be getting anywhere with this at all
Just thought i should make clear that every thing works and for kde apps its fine but outside of that mplayer etc they are looking i assume for the old analog card.

After working with this problem for awhile I decided it wasn't worth the effort, unless, of course, as someone pointed on in the thread below, you are plugging your computer system into your home entertainment center.
