It's a via combo bridge. I have a similar via based board

Your via chip and mine are driven by the same driver, so there's a chance you can use this info.
Can you check lsmod, see if any of those are loaded?
dmesg | grep -i "via"
since the driver doesn't have 8233 in it's name
And for the pin A thing, it seems that that might be an unsupported bios raid option thing with your motherboard.
Are you booting no-acpi? On mine, the acpi is 11.4, with the audio at 11.5. If you turn off the acpi, maybe that's disabling the audio along with it?
As for the possible c-media controller, you would need the c-media pci module, which dsl has as /lib/modules/2.4.26/kernel/drivers/sound/cmpci.o
And it might not be a c8738.
According to hardware4linux.info, it might be a ENS1371 Ensoniq / Sound Blaster 16PCI 4.1ch [Multimedia audio controller], but they have multiple a7v333 boards, listing either the cmedia or ensoniq controllers. None have a via bridge based controller. So try these first.
The ENS1371 is module
You might also want to try
modinfo cmpci es1371
to find some of their options.
Could there be any icq conflicts? Have you tried without the winmodem (I assume its pci, no?)
Finally, which slots are you using for the cards?
According to http://www.techsupportforum.com/hardwar....ms.html
There seems to be an issue with slot 5 and 3 on the a7v333. (remove any card in slot 5)
there seems to be an issue with sound blaster live cards and the a7v333, in general. Do you have another one you can try?
Last, what revision number is the motherboard?
