Re: Nforce, Linux and the endless story of the drivers!!!!!!!!
You can use the intel8x0 sound driver with alsa to do what you want.
It's pretty easy to get up and running, you just need to look around.
Mind you, I'm only running a 2.1 sound system, but still, the open driver is intel8x0. Works perfect for me.
