NForce2 + 2.4.22 : Not able to play multiple sound sources

I have been struggling quite a lot with my new nforce2-based motherboard (Soltek EQ3701M barebone) and I do not seem to get the sounds working.

I have tried :
* NVidia drivers with 2.4.20 and 2.4.18 (not compiling under 2.4.22)
* ALSA drivers with snd-intel8x0 under 2.4.22
* installed and able to run JACK, but do not know how to go from there or even if that is the way to go.

My 2.4.22 kernel has ACPI enabled and I have patched it to run @ 1000Hz instead of 100.

/etc/modules.conf cut out :

## Nvidia AGP
alias /dev/nvidia* nvidia

## ALSA NForce2
# ALSA portion
alias char-major-116 snd
alias snd-card-0 snd-intel8x0
# module options should go here

# OSS/Free portion
alias char-major-14 soundcore
alias sound-slot-0 snd-card-0

# card #1
alias sound-service-0-0 snd-mixer-oss
alias sound-service-0-1 snd-seq-oss
alias sound-service-0-3 snd-pcm-oss
alias sound-service-0-8 snd-seq-oss
alias sound-service-0-12 snd-pcm-oss

I have these :


I guess the adsp is for digital out since only the dsp is able to record. I do not get any sound out of adsp but the apps runs (xmms, TeamSpeak, UT etc)

I need a way to mix multiple sound sources and be able to playback them at the same time since I want to use voicecom while playing online games.

I have a soundblaster live that I know works for this but that would be to give up. The built in soundcard of nforce2 is working in microsoft windows so it must be a driver issue.

Any ideas? Most grateful if you have a solution.
