Sorry for the barrage of questions as of late but...
I've tried different linux distros for 2 years now (never ran more than a few hours) but I'm getting a lot more comfortable with this. The one problem was always that my turtle beach santa cruz sound card couldn't support my 4.1 speaker setup under linux. Today however, while booting into linux, I heard that ping sound from all 4 speakers!! (I just rebooted again to make sure). I'm wondering how I would set everything up so that I can play music from all 4 speakers. Cd's still play from only the two front ones.
