I am recording from line-in with a CMI-8738 (integrated on the
motherboard), under WindowsXP, and when the sampling rate is NOT
44.1kHz, there is a strong distortion in the sound. I would like to be
able to record at 48kHz. Can anybody help?

PS: I have tried the CM9739 driver but with it the same distortion
happens at 44.1kHz samping rate as well.

Thank you.

This is a Chaintech m/b. Thank you for the response. It seems that a
separate card is the way to go.
