What version of Fedora are you running?? In Fedora 7 I have this in
modprobe.conf:
alias snd-card-7 snd-usb-audio
options snd-usb-audio index=7

Why it picked 7 instead of 2 I have no clue. But, if Twinkle will allow
you to select the sound source and you still have a modprobe.conf (which
I'm reading on this list that 9 somehow doesn't??) you should see how
it's being handled. Just have it plugged in during boot, instead of
hot-plugging it, I would guess. system-config-soundcard should then show
both your usual sound card as #1 and your USB, as #2 or whatever number
it assigns. I hope this helps. 

Me, I'm installing CentOS which will hopefully still have such things as
modprobe.conf in it. Just call me old-fashioned and weary. I love this
bunch here and all the hard work they do. So, I'm not being petulant and
slamming the door on my way out. I just need stable to get the things
done I need done, is all. And installing CentOS seems to be the usual
reply when stable is needed. But, I'll continue to hang here offering
what I can, with whatever I have, whenever I can. Thanx to everyone! Ric
