Which kernel version do you use?

Please post the exact error message. Do you use your own kernel, or a
Debian package? If you use a package from debian.org (kernel 2.4 or
2.6), you should be able to load the module without finding out the IRQ
and DMA of the card. As far as I know these things (I have a computer
with opl3sa2 onboard) support ISA Plug and Play.
