I would strongly recommend ecasound then. It's a command line
multitrack recorder, that runs very stable. I admit, that I never
recorded more than a handful (4) channels. But in the long run,
ecasound is wonderful. At work, we record several hours of radio shows
each day for later processing into audio-on-demand offerings for our
website. Ecasound run from a cronjob has proven to be a stable
workhorse for over 2 years now. Combined with the stability of Linux
itself (the box is "always on") this is a near perfect solution.

We don't own a HDSP, so I cannot speak for that.
