A question for the gurus, or anyone with an idea on how to fix this... :)

I have just installed FreeBSD 4.8-RC1 (ISO from ftp.au.freebsd.org) on
my Dell Latitude C600 laptop a few days ago.  Everything works perfectly
except sound recording (playback is fine).  The sound hardware in the laptop
is OK, as I've tried it with Windows and Linux under which both recording 
and playback are OK.  I've checked and doublechecked mixer volumes, and
tried a variety of different sound recording software. 

The symptoms of the problem are as follows - I can plug a microphone in and
turn up the mixer volume to the Mic, and set the recording source to the Mic,
which causes the sound from my microphone to be echoed back onto the output
channel.  (So sound mixing is OK).  But in all cases but one if I try to make 
a recording I get silence - the remaining case being rawrec, which just locks
and requires a kill -9 to terminate.  The programs I have tried are:

- wavrec (from wavplay)
- wmrecord
- xwave
- glame
- gnomemeeting (the actual main reason why I want recording to work, BTW)
- rawrec (as mentioned above)

I've spent hours playing with this to no avail.  If anyone can help me here, 
especially if it's just something I'm not quite getting right, that would be 
very much appreciated...
