Mono inputs on "pro audio cards" are usually for meant for electrified
acustic instruments (guitar, bass, etc., anything containing a
pick-up) and besides being mono, they are not designed to take line
signals optimally (high impedance inputs AKA Hi-Z). Same story for
sound cards with a mic preamplifier (Low-Z inputs).
So, no, your sound card(what model is it?) won't do a stereo input
unless it has 2 regular (line level) inputs hidden somewhere.
You should have done a bit of research before buying your sound card ;)

The EMU 0404 USB should be supported in later kernels (I am sure
Clemens Ladisch has more insights to offer on this).
Even though this won't help you if you're running an ancient version
of Ubuntu, unless you update your kernel to a newer one.
