This sounds like the sound card I have, which is a Mediamagic ISP16
something.  I have it configured as a MAD16, with OPL2/OPL3, /dev/dsp,
MIDI interfac and FM synth.  I haven't got MPU401 going; I'm not sure
if I have one.  I also have ISP16 configured under CD-ROM drivers, for
my CDU-33A.

Were you a Microsoft programmer in a former life?  You don't need to
reboot to test different modules.

After installing a different version of the sound module, you should
be able to type "modprobe sound" to load the sound module.  Then try
"cat /dev/sndstat" to see if it got installed properly, and do
"modprobe -r sound" to get rid of it.  If modprobe doesn't seem to
work, then do "depmod -a" first.

If you make big changes, you might then need to recompile the whole
kernel, install it, and reboot.
