Another question...
If I'll found the 3 pins spdif output on my motherboard - now sorry
for wrong terminology of what follows.. - what's the name of pci
connector that provide me TOSLINK connector? (I already have optical
cable and I don't want acquire rca to toslink..)
Where I can buy this pci component?

Next, should I enable optical output on my bios? I read somewhere the
someone said that linux doesn't use bios, but I not an expert...  :-|

Thank you!!
