I also had some problems getting the damn thing to work under linux 2.6.3 with mandrake cooker but here's a new twist. The module nvaudio is not found when booting. If this stuff is suipposed to be included in the kernel then ???? The intel driver seemed to be just a sloppy patch even in the 2.4.xx kernel and didnt work worth diddly then either. Must we recompile the driver for 2.6 or something? I'm trying to use S/PDIF on my board as I do in winXP but no deal so far. I can see NVIDIA's reluctance to embrace the OSS model but sheesh this has been months and no leeway since 2.6.1 of the nforce drivers on their site.
