Can't really help you here. For me what I proposed "Just Worked".
Here is the list of audio related modules that are loaded---soundcore,
sound, ac97_codec, emu10k1.
A very useful source of help is Takeshi Iwai's pages on the use of SB
Live. (Google for this). I also recall the some pages written by
Markus Brinkmann helped.
