Count me among the confused as to why Nate thinks that the Audiophile
needed different drivers.  I've got an Audiophile in my son's machine,
which runs Fedora/Planet CCRMA, and it works flawlessly without any
3rd party drivers.  I've also got a Delta 1010 in my system, same 
distro, same success.

Nate, here's what I would do:
1) Get an immediate refund from 4Front Technologies
2) Uninstall their drivers (*)
3) Configure ALSA to handle the Audiophile as described in the link
4) Run qjackctl, start jack, run ardour, experience joy.

Ardour doesn't deal with OSS at all; it's reliant on JACK, which in turn
is reliant on ALSA.  OSS doesn't enter into the picture in terms of what
you're trying to do.

(*) I don't know what's required at this step, I really hope it's not
a reinstallation of SuSE.
