Although I'm not certain this was the probem, it seems to be simply a matter of removing "noacpi" from my boot options. I'd made some changes to the bios, reset the bios, and made a couple more changes, so I can't be 100% positive. In any case, I now have audio using my pci soundblaster.
I was hesitant to upgrade the bios because the upgrade path is apparently very dependent on the current bios version, and I couldn't find the version number for mine.
Thanks to all for taking the time to help.
EDIT: there seems to be some serious jumping now, both with audio and video files....I'll have to look into it again later.
