I agree with Paul that you don't need to turn off PCI bus power
management in the BIOS. I use ALSA (0.5.10) as modules for sound support
and have the following line in /etc/modules.conf:

  options snd-card-cs461x snd_id=card1 snd_index=0 snd_thinkpad=1

The last option works around the former PCI bus power problems.
