As an alternative, I wonder if it's possible to enable Skype to detect 
the onboard card, while keeping everything else on the USB preamp.

This way I could continue to use the headphones connected to USB for 
music, and I could just use the onboard sound card with a cheap 
headphones / microphone combo just for Skype.

Actually, I think I prefer this version better. :-)
