    ok so its not completely "new" its a free version of linspire
    but its a more custom tuneable completely free version

    figured it might be worth checking out to some people

    we went thought this before.

    Creative Sound Blaster Live! Digital

    its listed as not guaranteed to work with Linspire, anyways, even though its not an old card by any means.
