Keyboard volume knob configuration-cannot change volume.

Hi. I recently installed Ubuntu (6.10), and am having issues configuring the volume knob on my multimedia keyboard. I was able to get the volume control in my taskbar working by setting it to PCM, but regrettably, it does not change the keyboard settings as well. Alsamixer tells me that the keyboard is still controlling master volume. How can I change this?

(Ideally, I would have preferred to be controlling the volume using the master volume setting. What does PCM stand for, and what's the difference between using it rather than master?)
