It would be helpful to tell us what kind of sound chip is being used
For example, on my system, it is:
$ lspci | grep [Aa]udio
00:11.5 Multimedia audio controller: VIA Technologies, Inc.
VT8233/A/8235/8237 AC97 Audio Controller (rev 60)
If Id programs *require* SoundBlaster cards, then I'd either Google
on making AC97 emulate SB or finagling Doom to use AC97.

Is "common sense" really valid?
For example, it is "common sense" to white-power racists that
whites are superior to blacks, and that those with brown skins
are mud people.
However, that "common sense" is obviously wrong.
