I had to solder some surface mounts in tech school and the easiest way was to melt the solder on the contacts of the board. Then put the chip down on top of the solder and push each pin down with the soldering iron. That was the easiest way for me at least.

LM4562 - http://www.national.com/pf/LM/LM4562.html
LME4986 - http://www.national.com/pf/LM/LME49860.html
so i have 3 of the LM4562(s) and 5 of the LME4986(s)... now which one do I use on the card? for best sound and performance.
From the specs on each page they seem to be the same except the 4986 can handle more input voltage which you shouldn't have to worry about anyways. Either chip should give you the same result.
