From what I recall James talking about it, you should go to Windows
and switch the mode in Windows driver, and reboot. But I might be
saying totally wrong, since I'm talking from what I remember. It was
somewhere in the mailing list, I can't find it right now.

Driver for HDA Intel mode of Creative cards is in Takashi's
sound-unstable-2.6 tree, it's called patch_ca0110.c - see here:
