Default can't get any sound

I've been trying to get my onboard sound on my MSI K7N2G-ILSR working in linux for over a week now without any success. I'm using kernel 2.5 w/ alsa in the kernel. snd-intel8x0 is the driver I'm using. The driver loads fine, no error messages or anything. But when I try to play mp3s or media files, all the programs I've tried (xine, xmms, mpg123) failed. They seem to only get so far as to try to load the sound to the device, but thats it.

Like if I push play on xmms, it'll stay at 0:00 and with mpg123 I tell it to play a mp3, and after like 5 mins I'll do ctrl+c and it'll give me [0:00] <filename> meaning its decoded nothing of the song. If I were to add the -t argument (Test mode. The audio stream is decoded, but no output occurs.) It'll finish in like 1 second.

I can't find any error messages in any of my logs.

Any help would be greatly appreciated. I'm banging my head on the desk now. I know the hardware works, cause I dual boot with Windows 2000 Professional, and everything works fine there.
