Usually there should be no problems with audigy cards using the emu10k1 
driver.

My alsamixer shows "Card" Audigy2 Platinum (SB0240P).
Chip: SigmaTel  STAC9721,23
All works ok for the sounds

Regarding the Analog A switch, that should have been Audigy A switch Try 
scrolling along the various controls in alsamixer using the arrow keys. You 
should find a control named "Audigy A", and try changing it's state using the 
M key. This changes it's state from analog to digital output. Sometimes this 
control is muted, and consequently no analog sound output. It's also worth 
checking other sliders, like, Master, PCM, Front, Synth, and Wave, and 
pushing them up if at zero.

Apologies if I havn't helped to resolve your problem. I don't have F10 
installed on the machine with my soundblaster card, so I'm a bit in the dark 
with your problem.

Nigel.
