Default Trouble installing sound with AD1986a sndcard

Hi all, I'm relatively a newbie to the world of drivers, so I hope the next few lines don't appear very stupid!
I got a new motherboard (Asus A8N-VM) and have been trying to get my soundcard (Analog Devices AD1986a) working on linux (Suse 8.2). On the ALSA page for Analog Devices, I find drivers uptil AD1985 chipsets only - I did try installing the driver with the two options of intel8x0 and via82xx (i.e. modprobe snd-via82xx / modprobe snd-intel8x0, after the whole procedure of making and configuring), but they don't yield success!

Could anyone please throw some pointers or give me some links?

Thanks aprior,

Take the route of brute-force: download the latest knoppix cd and boot it. Should it come up with sound note which snd- modules are loaded and do the same with your Suse (is that version old?) If knoppix sound fails too, darn it. What I have done is buy a pci sound card (SB Live) that I know works well in linux.
