Okay, this is getting even weirder, and it's not just Myth.  I'm now 
using ALSA, and still none of the mixer sliders (alsamixer) have any 
effect when playing *any* sound from *any* program.  The only thing that 
has any effect is muting the PCM output.  Anybody that's familiar with 
this mobo know if there's a BIOS or jumper setting that I've perhaps 
screwed up?
