Are there any "PCI-E" sound cards that *will* work?
Are there any "PCI-E" sound cards that will work with Ubuntu 8.10 (or better)?
I made the mistake of believing that Creative's release of drivers (to support the Sound Blaster Titianium PCI-E card on Linux) was the same as having working drivers for the card/os. I see that this has been in the alsa queue forever, and that people claim to have this working (I'm skeptical, since they didnt post the steps to make it happen -- they post the threads that "contain" the magic code).
My options are:
1) Revert to windows.
2) Live without sound.
3) Wait for the Alsa group.
4) Buy another card that does work.
Im running a Dell PowerEdge T300, 2.6.27-11-generic, 8.10, if that makes any difference.

The Creative Titanium XFi/PCI-E works with Jaunty!
(You still need to make/install the Creative Drivers by hand, this is not too hard, even for someone new to Ubuntu (There are many threads that have the steps but Its basically:
1) download the XFiDrv_Linux_Public_US_1.00.tar.gz
2) untar it (you should be able to double click on it)
3) open a terminal window, and cd to the folder created
There is a readme that says:
1) Goto source directory (Youre already there)
2) Execute make command as root
