My sound card is a MAD16PRO, it's based on the OPTi 82c929 chip and
has 4 connectors for CD-ROM, a standard IDE, a Panasonic, a Sony and
... damn', I can't remember now. 
This SC is sometimes known as a SoundStorm and I suppose it's quite 
the same as the Turtle Beach Tropez. The manufacturer is "PRIMAX".

BTW I've not tried to setup the sound module yet: can anybody give me
some hints about it? The Sound-HOWTO says this card is supported but
it is not clear if I've got to pass some options. 
I don't want to recompile the kernel.
