Alright, I've hunted around the net, and it seems like a pretty lost case. Have any of you had any luck with getting X-fi to work... at all? I've had no luck so far, and its the only thing keeping me from doing a dual-boot w/ Windows and Linux. And after anyone has used an X-fi, going back to integrated is terrible! So whats the deal?

theres no x-fi drivers for linux. sound blaster originally said they would be out now but they had a press release not to long ago that stated becuz of the trouble with getting vista drivers to work they havent had any time to dedicate to the linux x-fi driver. they stated a estimated date of the middle of next yr.

you could always get an audigy.
