	Sound config has changed with the 2.2 kernel.  You no longer
config your sound in the kernel (IRQ,DMA,IO,etc).  You now select
the sound drivers as modules and config them in modules.conf. 
Here is what I have (SB 16 PnP) in modules.conf:

	# Sound config
	alias char-major-14 sb
	alias synth0 opl3
	options sound dmabuf=1
	options sb io=0x220 irq=5 dma=1 dma16=5 mpu_io=0x330
	options opl3 io=0x388

I'm not sure if the 'alias' lines are really needed, and the first
'options' line may not be needed either.  The last 2 'options'
lines should give you an idea of what needs to be done.

	P.S. Some programs I've tried since going to the 2.2 kernel no
longer have working sound.  Sound in the mirrormagic game is now
broken, for example, but things like GNOME and emusic still work.
