does anyone know what sndconfig actually does when it detects your sound
card?  I know it writes to the modules.conf file but it seems like it
initiallizes my soundcard somehow.  Is it doing a modprobe or something?

Thanks in advance


1. sndconfig

        I have a sound card with an Aureal chip.  I run sndconfig and it says
that it isn't supported.  The card has SBPro emulation, so I tried to set up by
doing sndconfig --noprobe.  I picked SBPro, and put in the I/O,IRQ,and DMA
numbers that it says in Windoze. (240, 5, 1) Also according to Windoze, there
are no conflicts with any of them.  When it tries to test it, I get:

modprobe error
/lib/modules/2.2.15-4mdk/misc/sb.o: init_module: Device or resource busy
/lib/modules/2.2.15-4mdk/misc/sb.o: insmod
/lib/modules/2.2.15-4mdk/misc/sb.o failed
/lib/modules/2.2.15-4mdk/misc/sb.o: insmod sound-slot-0 failed

Also, if I try to connect to the net with KPPP after I do that, it says that
the modem is busy...some kind of conflict that I don't know about? cat
/proc/pci shows nothing on IRQ5.  So...can anyone tell me how or get me started
on getting sound in Linux?  One less thing that I will have to go into Windoze
for if its fixed.  Thanks for any help.
