Hey Norm,

Here's a lead, I'm afraid the oss sound driver isn't suitable, your going to
have to track down the driver, I looked in the developement kernel docs
(that doesn't mean its not in there though) I couldn't see it.

Try emailing these fella's, let us know on the list how you go too.

      Well, i have DS-XG and downloaded the free sound drivers and got it
      working in like 15 minutes... It automatically detected my sound card
      and started working. Of course i did have to recompile the kernel so
      that it didn't automatically load up a sound driver, but I think that
      you can just edit the /etc/inittab file.
