Work started on Linux drivers for Aureal Vortex sound card

Looks like Linux drivers for cards based on Aureal's Vortex
chipset may be coming.  Here's what I was told:

1. Need help to make my Aureal Vortex Advantage sound card work under Linux

I'm a non-expert user of linux, and I've got a PCI Vortex
Advantage sound card. The problem is that I can't make it
work under Linux, neither as a Sound Blaster compatible
card. I couldn't find support in the Aureal site, and I
couldn't find any driver on the Web. Please help me to make
my own device driver, to find a site with it, or send me one
just made. I have real knowledges of hardware, so don't be
afraid about what you write. Thanks from now!!!(And sorry
about my English, I'm argentinian (latin)!!!)
