Creative Audigy 2 Platinum eX

I have a Creative Audigy 2 Platinum eX, with a 6.1 surround speaker system.
I'm running SuSE Linux 9.0, and it automatically detected and configured the card, but I only get standard stereo sound from the front speakers, even when playing 5.1 samples.
Is there any way I can configure linux to use cmss, eax, the remote control and the multiple inputs/outputs that this card provides?

There is no EAX since that is revolved around a seperate program supplied by Creative Labs. However, you can manually configure the card to play from several speekings. This feature should already be accessible within Volume control.

Beyond this, you would need to alter the drivers to provide what you want.
