OPTi 925 PnP

I'm not regular reader of this list, so I'd appreciate receiving a
direct response if anyone would like to help me.

I'm having a little trouble getting my OPTi 925 PnP working under

After setting up its resources with isapnptools, I noticed at boot that
OSS was loading the ad1848 and uart401 modules, so I set about trying to
configure them in /etc/conf.modules:

alias sound ad1848
alias midi uart401
options ad1848 io=0x0220 irq=5 dma=0 dma2=1
options uart401 io=0x300 irq=9

The uart module loads up just fine, but I get an error with the ad1848
at boot:
/lib/modules/preferred/misc/ad1848.0:  init_module: Device or resource
sound:  device or resource busy

In fact, if I remove all sound modules, and try to load in the ad1848
with modprobe, I get the same error.

But  /cat/proc/interrupts / dma / ioports      don't show any
conflcts.   These are the same resources used by the card in Win98 on
the same machine.  Am I missing something?  I'm not sure of the syntax
for the conf.modules file.  I lifted it from another machine using an

1. MAD16 pnp opti 925 / MSS once again..

Ok, I have a MAD 16 pnp (opti 925), which I can get to work
in MSS mode quite easily using isapnp. How good is the MSS mode?
Is it worth trying to get it to work using the mad16 driver?
Someone got it to work I recall, and I figure I should get
it to work, too, if I spend enough nights on it ;-). Anyhow
since the WSS is an MS invention, is it any good?
