Alrighty. Well, here goes:

duo at lia-fail:~$ cat /proc/asound/cards
  0 [Live           ]: EMU10K1 - SB Live 5.1 [SB0220]
                       SB Live 5.1 [SB0220] (rev.10, serial:0x100a1102) 
at 0xa000, irq 21
  1 [UART           ]: MPU-401 UART - MPU-401 UART
                       MPU-401 UART at 0x330, irq 10
  2 [CX8801         ]: CX88x - Conexant CX8801
                       Conexant CX8801 at 0xf3000000

Now, I know that 0 is my main card, my Soundblaster 5.1 card. I have no 
clue what 1 could be. I have my motherboard sound disabled in the bios. 
2 is obviously the 800i.

Im still on a learning curve here, so my next question is this:

What specifically do I need to do here? I am not sure how I would load 
the module with the proper options.

And, just for a bit of reference, im using ubuntu, with the 
2.6.22-14-386 kernel. I am using TVTime as my indicator of success 
failure. I can follow directions, and I know how to do regular 
rmmod/insmod. Im just a bit unsure how to proceed here. =)
