OK, gotcha.  Thanks.

Yes, this board doesn't have SPDIF.  And not too many card slots either,
I want to keep the one PCI slot remaining open for possible future
external eSATA drives for more storage rather than get a PCI sound card.
 So I am sticking with the interal analog sound.

And you know what, it sounds great (with the old kernel/ALSA driver)
paired up with a set of Logitech X-540 5.1 speakers.  My "real work"
computer (actually computers, one XP and one Ubuntu with three monitors
and a KVM switch!) has a set of 2.1 speakers hooked up to internal
analog sound cards and you can hear web pages scroll up and down ;-). 
So I was very pleasantly surprised at how great my analog MythTV
Intel-HDA/Logitech X-540 set up sounds.

I basically do have the sound working with 8.04's new kernel/driver, at
least as well as it is going to work.  The new driver just isn't as
good, so I don't want to stick with it.
