Maverick and Delta 1010lt

I've been using US 10.04 for awhile on an older machine. I picked up a
newer machine and decided to move my Delta 1010lt card to this machine
and install US 10.10. What a nightmare it has been as I've been
dealing with issues with lowlatency kernels, nvidia drivers and now
the 1010lt card. Let me tell you this is not for the faint of heart as
I've been working at this for 4-5 days now.

Anyways, I won't go into the nvidia issues and the lowlatency kernel
issues for now. What I'm trying to get working is sound through my
1010lt at least. I've actually got an on board sound card that I've
disabled in BIOS so I can focus on the 1010lt. I'm able to get sound
out of the card using Jack and Hydrogen and I even get a test sound
from the terminal with aplay. However, I'm not getting squat for
system sounds, audacious, firefox etc. I can't believe this problem
with the ICE1712 cards has been around for so long and there is
nothing but numerous workarounds and they work part of the time, but
not all of the time. Now, I'm just hopelessly lost in workaround hell.

Ok, so ranting off now. I followed several bug reports and I think
those have at least allowed me to get the sound card working through
Jack. However, I still have no sound via the system. Any ideas on what
I can do to get this sovled? Any nice, easy to follow (all solutions
in one easy thread instead of following numerous links with just a
small fix each) solutions out there? Would it be better to get the
BIOS sound card working for system sounds and the 1010lt for Jack etc?
I would like to be able to record some "system sounds" like sound
clips from video files or other such stuff, but I think that can be
done through some of the Jack pluggins.

Should I just wait until 11.04 comes out and hope most of this has
been addressed? I think the lowlatency is being better addressed in
Natty at least.

Thank you for any suggestions you may have.
