how do you configure em8300 and aureal vortex in modules.conf?

I cannot seem to get both of them to work at the same time. If I enable aureal drivers in modules.conf, the em8300 only works with analog output. The digital output is not working. If I enable only em8300, then the rest of my system does not have sound but I have audio and digital output via the hollywood plus card.

my modules.conf: (both em8300 and aureal enabled - allows analog output of oss, allows use of aureal arts server and hence sound for the rest of the KDE apps)

probeall scsi_hostadapter ide-scsi
probeall usb-interface usb-uhci
alias eth0 natsemi
alias /dev/nvidia* NVdriver
# Aueral configuration
alias char-major-14 au8810
alias sound-slot-0 au8810
alias sound-service-0-0 au8810
alias sound-service-0-1 au8810
alias sound-service-0-3 au8810
alias sound-service-0-8 au8810
alias sound-service-0-12 au8810

alias char-major-121 em8300
alias sound-slot-1 em8300
alias sound-service-1-0 em8300
alias sound-service-1-1 em8300
alias sound-service-1-3 em8300
alias sound-service-1-8 em8300
alias sound-service-1-12 em8300
below em8300 adv717x
below adv717x sound-slot-0 sound-service-0-0
options em8300 dicom_fix=1 dicom_control=1
options adv717x pixelport_16bit=0
post-install em8300 /usr/local/share/em8300/ /usr/share/misc/em8300.uc

modules.conf : em8300 only ( audio and digital output available from the hollywood plus but since aureal is not loaded, I have no sound for the other multimedia apps)

probeall scsi_hostadapter ide-scsi
probeall usb-interface usb-uhci
alias eth0 natsemi
alias char-major-121 em8300
pre-install em8300 modprobe adv717x
options adv717x pixelport_16bit=0
options em8300 dicom_fix=1 dicom_control=1
alias /dev/nvidia* NVdriver

I am not sure what the sound-service entry do. I got it off the internet on

Thanks for any help you can give.

Never Mind. I figured it out. the modules.conf I am currently using is correct. I just had to tell xine to use /dev/dsp1 instead of /dev/dsp. Apparently, /dev/dsp is aureal while /dev/dsp1 is em8300.
