Hi, David!

I have Ubuntu Studio 9.10 and M-Audio FireWire Solo card -- working
well, it consists all software what you need, but you will have
troubles with killing PulseAudio ;).

You should have installed jackd(http://jackaudio.org/), it using FFADO
as audio driver.

You may be interested in qjackctl as GUI for jackd.

Must to visit http://subversion.ffado.org/ and read:
