[LAU] M-Audio card in Ubuntu 10.04, also QJackCtl

Due to my motherboard choice, it turns out I need to use a bleeding edge 
linux, in my case Ubuntu 10.04 beta.

Anyone else using this?  In the sound preferences control panel, on the 
hardware tab, when I select ICE1712 (what the M-Audio 2496 shows up as), 
in the settings dropdown, I only see digital outputs and inputs.  The 
HDA device lets me select something line "Analog Stereo Duplux", but 
nothing analog shows up for the M-Audio card.  Does anyone know how to 
make more options appear hear?

In another machine, still running ubuntu 9.10, I have another M-Audio 
card, and it gives me a full range of options including both Analog 
Stereo Duplex and Digital Stereo Duplex.l  That card seems to be CM8738 
based though.

I may be getting side tracked here from what I really want though.  What 
I really want is to use the M-Audio card with Jack, while still having 
pulseaudio running on the onboard sound so that I can have both nice 
audio applications and Flash outputting at the same time (albeit to 
seperate channels on the mixing board).  I see in QJackCtl that I can 
select the alsa device to use, but it still shuts down pulseaudio 
globally when I select the second card.  And still for some reason the 
second card doesn't want to work correctly here.  When I had this card 
in a prior 8.04 system, I disabled the onboard sound and didn't try this 
dual output trick, but otherwise everything worked auto-magically.
