Device numbers are "in the hardware" and won't change due to a different 
OS/driver version.  They will only change if you install different 
(brand/model) hardware.

However, the device number for IEC958 is definitely correct for the SB 
Live! at device 2.  Therefore, my theory is that you weren't using 
digital output on FC3 (which may be why it worked everywhere on FC3).  
Did you also have analog outputs plugged in when you were using FC3?
