You would need the xpm4.7 package under oldlibs for a libc5 version of

Check out the xset command.

Well, get your copy of the kernel source. Then download the awe32 patch
(available as Debian package). Follow the instructions in the
/usr/src/awe-source (I think...its awe-something). Then go and configure
your kernel. You will also need isapnp for the awe64.
You can take a look at the KERNEL-HOWTO and Sound-HOWTO for more info.
There should also be one for the Awe32 if I remember correctly.
Hope this helps
