Default nForce4 Onboard sound card

hi there, i'll start off by saying i'm using ubuntu dapper drake.

basicly my problem is as follows- i have a 8.1 speaker set up in my room, but the problem is linux will only use left and right speakers, not even the bass (tinny bass annoys me) so all day today i've been bashing away tring to get these damn drivers to work (the ones that nvidia provides)

also just won't cut it i've been changing sliders and menus for the last 2 hours and i've only managed to make it sound worse.

i've tried using the nvidia installer and it ran fine but i have nfi how to 'activate' the drivers i tried adding a module in modprobe or whatever it's called, i've tried rebooting after each change and no luck, i hope you guys can help me.

also i should add when i try to run the command (after running the nvidia installer) 'nvmixer' i get the error " nvmixer: error while loading shared libraries: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory "
