[LAU] nforce (intel8x0) midi

I've just found that I have a game port midi adapter, so while I wait 
for my USB-midi device to arrive I thought I'd give it a try. However, I 
cannot for the life of me find any information on how I go about 
enabling midi on my nforce mobo.

A post on the alsa mailing list said that adding the option 
mpu_port=330x0 to the snd-intel8x0 module worked, but that wasn't 
specifically for an nforce, and my version of snd-intel8x0 doesn't 
actually have any mpu options!

I've loaded every module I could find called snd*midi or snd*seq, and 
still the only output I get from aconnect -io is:

client 0: 'System' [type=kernel]
     0 'Timer           '
     1 'Announce        '
client 128: 'TiMidity' [type=user]
     0 'TiMidity port 0 '
     1 'TiMidity port 1 '
     2 'TiMidity port 2 '
     3 'TiMidity port 3 '

Any ideas?
