But you can do something.  From the responses it appears that my
problem may simply be a crappy on-board sound controller.  I am going
to get a SoundBlaster card and try again.  Anyone have any advice on
that?  I would like to keep it in the under $100 (Canadian) range if I
can.  Quality doesn't have to be ultra great.  Mostly I am just
recording my band's rehearsals for our own study.
