Basicly that if you don't have a case with explicit support for HD audio for the front panel you have to set the software, Realtek HD Audio Panel in my case, to "Disable Front Audio Detection" to run it in AC'97 compatability mode.
If I do it correctly detects that my headset, both mic and speakers, are plugged in but I don't get the option to mute the back panel.
That option is only available in the default, HD, mode.
Some googling turned up a page at Intel
that shows that, indeed, the pinouts for the AC'97 and HD front panel aren't the same.
I'm a bit peeved about this since I've been lamenting the fact that using my Audigy 2ZS card with my other rig prohibited me from using the front panel audio connector as Creative doesn't support anything but their own drive bays and now it turns out I'm still out of luck. *sigh*
