I do not have a Thinkpad but my Toshiba Satellite 2545 apparently uses the
same sound settings. I've seen a warning on some list that you should use

alias char-major-14 opl3sa2

and not the "alias sound opl3sa2". Apparently, "sound" is a different
existing module (maybe specific to Debian?) and it collides with the
opl3sa2. I also do not use the "pre-install sound insmod sound dmabuf=1"
but maybe you need that on the Thinkpad... BTW, I'm using Debian 2.2r0.

Accidentally, I'd appreciate if anybody knows a good reference for the
meaning of minor numbers in sound devices, i.e. whether they map to the io
ports of the driver, etc. Haven't had much luck searching
kernel-doc. Thanks.
