Hi gang... I'm new to this list so please bear with

   I have Agnula DeMudi taking op 100 GB of my drive
at the momment, with the other  100 split tween
Mandrake 10.1 community and Win XP.  HAve been using
cubase to do audio work as i can't seem to get Ardour
to record any audio.  Would love to have ardour to do
tracking and maybe cubase for certain effects or

    The Debian system seems devoid of anything like
'automount' so i have to log in as root and mount my
cdroms etc.  Any quick solution for that? Verry time
consuming... ALso, the alsa mixer shows lots of inputs
like 'line' that don't seem physically present. My
soundcard is a Realtec ALC655 rev 0  - not the best
i'm assuming....

    I have on loan a Tascam  US 122 USB mic i/o. Any
ideas about alsa support for that puppy? I know usb
isnt ideal but hey - it's there! 

Thanx in advance to y'all
