FiredudeChad, I have the same card in another computer (laptop). On VL SOHO I didn't get any sound either. On my box it was a "problem" with the mixer settings.Try playing some sound, open kmix, go to the "switches" tab and enable the "External Amplifier" switch.
Hope it works for you.
thank you so much, it worked. however there was one more step to it, in the switches there is also a head phone jack sense. once this was unselected it worked. i also found out that if external amp is off it also works. and i think if this is the case it works better. it sounds clearer with out the amp on so you might want to try it.
thanks for your help
