I'm very happy with my RME Hammerfall DSP w/ Multiface. A bit pricey, but
it's well supported, 8 simultaneous analog inputs, and very transparent
sounding. I have a PCI card and a Cardbus card so I can use the Multiface
with either my desktop or my laptop.

If you use Gentoo, be sure to add "jack" and "jack-tmpfs" to your USE flags.
You might also want to add "caps".
I also add the following lines to my /etc/portage/package.keywords:
