How do i connect it?
Is there a layout description of it?

Here the details :

                   AZALEA                                       AC 97

From what I can find out nobus it looks like you possibly have the Dell Dimension 8400 in which the Azalea is included. At this link you will find a systems manual for the Dell Dimension 8400 which will most likely include the manual for the motherboard http://support.dell.com/support/edocs/systems/dim8400/en/index.htm#online_documentation

Let me know if this helps.

It should be spelled 'Azalia', which will help with Google searches.

On p2-30 of http://www.asus.com/pub/ASUS/mb/socket775/P5GD1/e1745_p5gd1.pdf, there is a diagram of this header, which says you connect it to a module on the front panel.  It sounds to me that the same cable can be used for both, and the only difference is the module it plugs into.

                   AZALIA                                    
Sense 2 Return    o    o     Port 2 L          
                               o    Sense Send      
Sense 1 Return    o    o    Port 2 R          
Presence             o    o    Port 1 R

Have you tried the one-for-one mapping in the Asus manual, ie, use the same pins for AC97?

What do you mean? the corresponding pins of the AC97 connector?

Yes - the manual did not make a distinction between connecting it to an Azalia front end or an AC97 fron end.  This makes me think that it operates using autosense.

Ok, I'll try that, although there is a setting in the bios to change over from one to the other

Callandor, that did not work.

Any other ideas?

That's too bad - which motherboard do you have?  Maybe the manual has a hint in there.
