Both ... I should say the 32-bit linux test was done on different
hardware. The events were:

a) pc1, fedora 11 32-bit both maudio delta 1010 and 2496 coexist happily
b) pc2 new build to be a 64-bit machine
c) pulled delta 1010 out of pc1, inserted into pc2 -- noise
d) installed win7 64-bit in dual boot configuration on pc2, no noise
with delta 1010

To be honest, I'm not sure exactly how to check. They are the latest
versions of fedora 11 (32-bit) and fedora 12 (64-bit).
srcversion from a modinfo yields different results.

32-bit fedora 11
Linux beethoven
srcversion:     F7E1C076BE18C5DFF723A6E

64-bit fedora 12
Linux debussy
srcversion:     0B183929429B4C5102B7D09

another interesting angle... I thought it might be power or some kind
of internal noise. How could I pursue that further?
