   Doing some googling, I  found both instructions (disable or not disable in BIOS)
   - I don't see why one card should be disabled to use the other.
     For example, you can have 2 ethernet cards. Why not 2 sound cards?
   - actually, both cards worked perfectly during 6 months, and as I said,
     both work perfectly 1 or 2 hours after reboot.
   - anyway, I tried to disable the integrated card, but after that my machine
     don't boot: stays indefinitely on "checking NVRAM" (apparently a BIOS BUG...)
