Sound card on dell box with ISA Expansion card

Sound card on dell box with ISA Expansion card

Post by ccalz.. » Tue, 02 May 2000 04:00:00

Hi kids.  Trying to get my sound card working.  Any ideas would be
most appreciated.

The sound card doesn't plug directly into the motherboard.  Instead,
there is some kind of expansion card with three ISA-type slots that
the sound card plugs into.

The card is not PnP.

Through Windows NT, I cannot seem to determine the IRQ and like settings
for the card, although there is now a Yamaha control panel that tells me
that something (possibly the MP-401 device) is operating at IO=0x330h

Everything I've tried (various drivers, various IRQ/IO/DMA settings) get
me as far as getting all the base modules working (sound, soundcore,
uart401 or mpu401) but I can never get the final module to load (usually
opl3 or opl3sa that I've been playing with) ending up with a

    Device or Resource busy

Any ideas?

1. PCI NIC card in same box as ISA NIC card ?

It should not be long before cable modems arrive in my neck of the woods.
These cable modems connect to an NIC installed in a PC. I currently have
two PCs which both contain old 3Com 3C503 ISA NIC cards to network them
together. One box, running Linux is used as an Internet proxy server.

If I get a cable modem and connect it to my Linux box, would it be OK to
use a 3Com 3C905 PCI NIC alongside the 3C503 ISA card I've already got
installed ? I can't fit another ISA card in my box, it has to be PCI.
