Oh, I see the PA Device Chooser.  It appears as an applet.  Doh!
Seems everything is there - just that there is no default server...
Hm..

I forgot to add: /etc/modprobe:
==================
alias snd-card-0 snd-hda-intel
options snd-card-0 index=0
options snd-hda-intel index=0

Hmm...  should there be a midi entry in there?

Thanks-
