I've tested the sbxfi driver and it works great on my setup.

Had little problems before getting it running :
i had to comment out the snd_printk stuff, otherwise the module wouldn't
load (snd_printk* symbols not found, in dmesg)
This was probably not the cleanest way to deal but  it's just debug messages
and i'm new wrt kernel driver hacking.
I also had to disable my onboard audio in BIOS, otherwise the X-Fi would not
get picked up.

i'm using Fedora 9 with Linux kernel (standard supply
from fedora repos),and pulseaudio
I'm using with standard 2.1 jack output, i do not yet own home cinema
speakers so i couldn't test all the cabling options.

Thanks for this great work,

Best Regards,
