It will most likely not. Support for 96khz is not a high priority. The reason: Even 44.1khz is a range well above what people can hear, and Musepack supports up to 48khz.
96khz is mainly for audio production, not playback. Whoever decides to make it a "standard" for playback makes a suboptimal, useless choise. Professionals require the ability to be able to downsample audio while keeping it high quality, that's why some products support 192khz and even much higher. No lossy audio codec is a proper format for storing raw, editing suitable audio. Lossy formats are meant for playback of end products and live content.

As for your resampling problem with the Audigy 2 ZS card, it sounds weird that its resampling would distort audio so noticeably. Perhaps something in the software/driver configuration causes it. A good place to find any possible information about it or ask for help is the audio hardware forum on Hydrogenaudio.

And as for a high quality fast resampler, I don't know any for Winamp, but for foobar2000 there is PPHS. You could inquire this on Hydrogenaudio as well.
