Wouldn't this type of information be best contributed to the Alsa 
documentation?  If I had a sound issue, that's the first place I'd look. 
    Honestly, the first step in the Myth documenation needs to be "Make 
sure your system works -- sound, video, lirc, mysql, network, etc".  Add 
links to the main site for each project Myth depends on.

By documenting these things for Myth, you're potentially fragmenting the 
effort for those other projects.  Share back with those communities.  By 
concentrating efforts in the proper places, you ensure the most eyes see 
it and make relevent corrections or additions as well as are helped by 
your efforts.
