Fair enough, you're probably right, but I didn't want to post the
positive message (this workaround fixes it) without the proviso (sound
still doesn't work well enough to use, for me). So for completeness:
today, if you want to use an Asus A8N-VM CSM, make sure you also have a
PCI-E video card (eg an NVidia 6200TC-based board), and a sound card.
