I have that same MB.  I put in a seperate sound card due to the hasle  
I had getting it to work with the on-board one.  It does work, but I  
had to compile an alsa driver for it I think ( its been a while ) to  
get it to fire up.  An OK card ( Sound Blaster Live Value is what I  
have ) was only like 20 or 30$.
