No, I don't believe this is the case. As far as I know you only need ONE
sound blaster. Anyway, I have justisntalled the new (beta-release) drivers
today and I will try them out on some unsuspecting CUSeeMe'er rather soon.

What is your opinion of Iphone's audio compared to CUSeeMe's? Is it
noticably better? (How could it be much worse! :)
