[PlanetCCRMA] Getting started, but getting nowhere

To avoid you getting your head blown off with noise Alsa mutes the sound by
default. Call up the mixer and unmute the sound. There are also directions
on the website that describe how to make sure the right sound modules are
loading. If unmuting the sound does not fix the problem then that's the next
thing to check.

I'll be taking a SB live out of my system and putting in a 1010 in the next
week or so I'm interested in how you get on. It appears that many folks on
this list use 1010's with PlanetCCRMA just fine.

Hope that helps
