which sound card for linux?

Hi guys,
this is my first post… sorry for my bad english. :wink:

I’ve just installed ardour, jack and the kernel-rt on my fedora10 box, and it works great, but i have only one stereo input (the sound card was sold with the pc). I need to record a drum (at least 8 mics) but i have no experience in sound cards. Could you suggest me a good one to buy?

I should record at 48kHz, is there well supported hardware? i heard about m-audio… is that a good choice?

Thanx in advice, guys… XD
