Dear diary,

You know the setup;

pIII600 (overclocked a bit to 660)
ASUS P3B-F mobo 384mb
emagic emi 2|6 usb audio interface
RedHat 8.0 and CCRMA packages

Ardour jackd and I weren't getting along at all. 
Latency out of control, jackd -R -d alsa -d hw -p 2048
kinda helped but I still got xruns.

Thanks to  Mark Knecht, I changed the pci/usb/emagic
irq from 5 to 9.  Thanks to Takashi Iwai, I'm using a
multiple of the emi's 48 for the jackd
frames-per-period setting.

jackstart -R -d alsa -d hw -p 480

Now jackd, ardour and I are making great music
together.  I hope others can learn from my experience.

Next challenge; getting all 6 outs to work and
stopping xruns in xmms etc.
