try this, I did this on mandrake 6 with the 2.2.9-19mdk kernel, this from
an earlier post.
1.) Extract the drivers you downloaded off Creative's Web site into a
folder on your personal directory
2.) You will need to copy the file named "emu10k1.o-2.2.5-15 into your
/lib/modules/2.2.9-19mdk/misc (or the /lib/modules/2.2.7/misc in your case)
folder and rename it to emu10k1.o
3.) Open up your /etc/conf.modules file and add the following lines:-
alias sound emu10k1
options emu10k1 -f
pre-install emu10k1 insmod soundcore
post-remove emu10k1 rmmod soundcore
Save the file and reboot and that should be that :-)
A word of warning though, if you are going to upgrade your kernel, it
must be of the 2.2.10 or higher varety, as the emu10k1 module will not
work with kernel upgrades below these.
