It works for me with MidmMam DiO 2448 which is also based on the CMI8738
and the (paid for) oss drivers. The DiO 2448 fitted my requirement which
was for the cheapest card that has S/PDIF input.
I'm sure it's not your distro that's at fault. I use Debian with 2.4.19
kernel but I'm sure RH8 can be made to work. What drivers are you
using? Have you tried both OSS and ALSA?
