USB audio

I've just invested in a Logitech USB Headset 350 as I wanted to play
with VoIP stuff like Skype etc. But when I plugged them in to my Hoary
686 kernel, I could not get them to work. There was no USB audio device
available in the Volume Control panel etc.

After some hunting around I decided to reboot into the 386 kernel that
was still around and bingo, the USB audio stuff worked a treat and I was
happily listening to Pink Floyd and making Skype phone calls!

It seems that the snd-usb-audio module is not included in the 686 kernel
for Hoary, but is included in the 386 kernel.

Any idea how I could rectify this problem? I would really like to use a
686 kernel, and not the 386.

Many thanks in advance.
