I know this OT but I have that chipset working with a kernel patch.  I can 
send it to you off the list.  The sound chip that I have is the same and it 
is working fine for me with the alsa drivers.  The latest version worked for 
me which two weeks ago was - 0.9rc5.  There were fairly good instructions on 
the site of how to do this -- look under supported cards.

I also had trouble getting AGP to work from this chipset but got it to work 
with building it as a module and then putting the following in 

# For KT400 AGP drivers
options agpgart agp_try_unsupported=1
alias /dev/agpgart agpgart

Let me know if you need further info.
