JACK almost working

Thanks Steve :)

I eventually got sound (from ZynAddSubFX) coming out of my speakers and I
know how to repeat the process, so I'm quite happy :)

Figured that I was best off creating a different user for recording purposes
and have only JACK programs running as that user.  That seems to work well.

Now my issue is that I have a Soundtech Lightsnake cable and I can't get it
to make any sound.  At one point, I managed to record something from it in
Ardour but I've never been able to do that again.

Theoretically, connecting system input (the lightsnake - "USB Audio") to
system output (my soundcard) should allow me to hear what I'm playing but
nothing happens.  Even connecting the system input to ardour's inputs
doesn't work.  Even after tinkering with the mixer in Ardour.

I'm frustrated but determined.  Any help would be GREATLY appreciated!
