Sound Card ohh... Sound Card (was : SC on Dell Latitude Xpi )

Dear Jeff.

I think your best option is to us the ALSA sound system.  I
checked in the 2.4.18 kernel source and the ES1887 is supported,
but you'd have to update with Bunk's packages or go to Woody to
run the 2.4.x kernel.  Check out ALSA, I think that's the easiest

Thanks for the clue.
But I haven't got there, yet.

I'm trying to install ALSA driver from potato packages now.
though I'm having some hard time in make, I finally managed to get the modules installed on /lib/modules/2.2.19/misc.

When I try to modprobe snd-card-ens137x series, and snd-card-es1xxx series, comes the invalid resources errors. But when I try to modprobe snd-ensxxx or snd-es1xxx series, I got no errors and the modules is installed, at least it was according to lsmod. But I still got no audio. aumix said : error opening mixer. XMMS said no audio device.

So what was those modules?
Why can't I get no voices?

How do I detect what kind of sound card I have?
When I do lspci, it only said :
00:00.0 Host bridge: PicoPower Technology PT86C52x [Vesuvius] (rev 04)
00:06.0 ISA bridge: PicoPower Technology PT80C524 [Nile]
00:07.0 VGA compatible controller: Neomagic Corporation NM2070 [MagicGraph NM2070] (rev 01)
00:08.0 IDE interface: CMD Technology Inc PCI0643

pnpdump said: no boards found.
I have no other clues, besides the one Dell told me that it was ES1887 card.
I download the dos-driver from dell, but I haven't plans to reinstall dos/windoze here. Hopefully don't have to.

Anymore clues?
