Yes, that's correct.  They drivers for OPL3-SA and OPL3-SAx are quite
different.  I found configuring sound for my machine (Toshiba 490CDT)
relatively complicated, but you can figure it out if you carefully read the
documentation with the kernel source (/usr/src/kernel-source/documentation/source).
It explains the difference between the chips.

An easier but more expensive solution is to buy commercial sound drivers
from OSS.  It costs about $20, and configures the sound card automatically.

But to check the state of your sound, type in
           cat /dev/sndstat
and see if everything's recognised properly.
