sblive, digital.

i'm not entirely sure if this should go into the hardware forum or not, but here i go anyway.

first things first, i am able to get sound. i can play mp3s (not cds though) without a problem. now, if i weren't as picky as i am, i think i might let this go. i have a soundblaster live and have recently discovered the joys of trying to get digital output to work. i have been told from a number of people that digital out works "out of the box" for redhat 9, but i think they are liars. my card has the dual output configuration, that is, one digital channel and one analog channel. analog output works without a problem. i've tried and tried to install the emu10k1 project drivers and tools. i've followed the instructions, but i still don't get any digital output (in xmms at least). i've editied modules.conf and had it run 'emu-script' like the installation instructions told me, and i also made sure to specify 'yes' for digital output in emu10k1.conf. i don't know if there's something huge that i'm missing here or if i'm totally screwed. for the record, i've tried plugging the analog speakers into the digital port; doesn't work. any help would be appreciated.
