One last comment on this. I seem to be getting the same error messages  
with Edison but I don't know if I had them before putting the sound  
card in. If I get ambitious down the way i will yank the card and see.  
But Edison does boot and play sound properly. I don't recall if I  
tried CD sound in the Alpha 7 KDE 3.5 version or not, but I don't have  
those disks anymore.

I am again unable to boot into the latest Alpha. I got in just the one  
time. I think I will wait for the next cycle and hope it works in  
that.   :-)
