would xorg.conf really be helpful? it sounds like he's using KDE (the 
mention of Kaffeine?) and if it is, wouldnt he just change the order of 
the devices in the settings manager? I had to re-arrange things there 
for it to properly choose which of my multiple sound cards to use as my 
priority. I don't have one of those cards so I couldn't say from 
previous experience, but xorg.conf usually handles just X display 
settings (number of heads/screens/video cards/resolution) worst case 
scenario if xorg.conf was the issue, he should be able to rename it and 
let xorg create a new one.
