Hi Guenter,

    Thanks for the update.

    Could you elaborate on that?

    Which drivers come with the 2.1.xxx?  I will d/l and compile the latest
2.1.xxx, but should I use oss-free, oss-linux, or ALSA?

    I got perfect audio in, then out, using kernel 2.0.36 with oss-linux,
but full-duplex had some problems.  Using the "start-here" example the
numbers of the audio in where changing once every 2 seconds, while the audio
out made looping crackling noise.  The hard drive sounded like it was being
accessed every half second or so.

    I'll try the kernel that you suggested and see what happens.  What
driver do you recommend with 2.1.xxx?  oss-free, oss-linux, or ALSA?
