I'm not an expert in managing 2soundcards (I sould learn more about
that,cause I also have an integrated intel and an external one [usb
m-audio]). You may configure that with system-configure-soundcard (and
choose wich is your "first" soundcard). In my case it works (I mean
when I boot without the external card, the integrated one is used,
otherwise, the sytem uses the usb as predeterminated)
