What kernel? Maybe the interrupt is wrong, or conflicting with something

I use an old GUS, works fine. A SB16 worked as well, although I had lots
of problems with sound playback "stuttering" (DMA starvation is my
diagnosis). However, I changed a lot of variables since that happened
(GUS instead of SB16, QLogic 1040 instead of QLogic 1020, and QLogic in
a different PCI slot). My opinion is that it was the QLogic and/or the
slot it was in.  Now the sound playback is perfect, never any stopping
(I use xmms). Oh yeah, in case you don't know: both the GUS and SB16 are
ISA cards; I have an XLT-366.
