[PlanetCCRMA] Two sound cards

Hi List,

I have a Thinkpad T60P laptop.  It has a Intel sound card built in.  I 
added a SIIG USB SoundWave 7.1 sound card and to my amazement the card 
was automatically configured and ran out of the box.  My problem is 
that it seems that every other boot the Intel sound card is configured 
but no sound results.  How can I correct the situation so that when the 
USB sound card is not plugged in, I can produce sound from the Intel 
card and when the USB sound card is present on boot that card always is 
used?  Any thoughts would be greatly appreciated.  Thanks.

I am aware and have seen a number of references re 2 sound cards but 
was unable to find any relevant info.  Any references to topics would 
also be useful to me.
