I finally got the sound in a Dell with the CS4236 working by disabling the
onboard sound and inserting a new $12.00 PCI sound card.  After a number of
hours I decided that it was no longer worth my time.  The ALSA that Peter

While I welcome Dell's possible entrance into selling Linux, I really hope
they contribute what ever is necessary to make their hardware work well...
