Thanks ernst,

I just needed that little bit of reassurance. There doesn't seem to be 
any (simple, 2 channel, affordable, good quality) sound cards I've read 
up on that even works (I'm on LAU and this group). Some take tons of 
work to get install correctly and then don't have certain functionality 
or are flakey. I just needed to hear someone come right out and say "yes 
it works".

Let's not forget... there's a big difference between "it works with my 
linux distrob" and "it works with FC5/CCRMA". There's so much weeding 
out to do to lead to actually getting a good card (at least a good 
quality 2 channel card).

I'm looking forward to trying the card out. Maybe I can actually start 
producing some music.
