MMkay, managed to get the sound working with exactly these lines in
modules.conf. Didn't really do anything apart from uninstall the Yamaha
card. Either way full duplex is working well now. :)

Now to get on to the inbuilt nForce although I may not bother since there is
no onboard TV-out and it's probably just cheaper to buy a AGP GF2 MX400 with
TV-out and use that instead.

As for the TVout card - the chipset is an nForce 2 but the link provided by
someone else is for an MSI motherboard.
