Get Avid to run with unsupported audio card

Frank Capria notes a Genius DV trick to enable editors to run Avid Media Composer on PCs with unsupported audio cards often found on legacy machines, which might be useful for logging on an older laptop or something. Genius DV found:

"A quick visit to your nearest Radio Shack may be your solution. The work around is to purchase a small usb audio device made by Gigaware. Specifically it's the 'Gigaware HeadPhone to Stereo USB Adapter with Microphone.' This device plug's into any USB socket and provides audio I/O functionality. If you can't find it at your local Radio Shack store, you can purchase it online for $20.00."
