I tried that and I get the same results as in the bug link you posted.  
I have a feeling I need the audio cable hooked up, but when I disable  
audio in the CMOS and put the sound card in I get an SIO error and the  
Alpha won't boot past it. I will do some more playing later this week  
to see if I can boot Ubuntu with the card installed. If that works I  
will probably try re-installing the alpa with the card in and see if  
that works. It has to be something they did in the KDE4 stuff because  
audio worked fine with KDE3.5 in place.
