Thanks Jim,

I agree - for now, the accessible RAM in my system should be enough to 
do plenty of audio stuff. Plus, a system & separate audio drive is good 
for I/O transfer rates. But my audio setup is a mess until I do a bunch 
of things - some dealing with hardware & some with software.

Software wise, I had things more or less working, but mostly untried 
under fc7 & CCRMA. I don't have audio of any sort working with my 
present setup. (I have a Firepod that needs to visit the Presonus 
hospital for an operation, & also a 2nd audio interface that's in a 
Linux waiting room :) I think my lack of sound under fc8 & CCRMA might 
be PluseAudio related, but I haven't tried to google & solve this yet. 
I'll start a new thread if I can't get going.

Well, unless someone has a simple answer to why I have no sound - 
there's no audio interface attached ATM; I'm just interested to hear the 
machine make noises via the on-board audio.
