	I went back and looked at menuconfig, and Bob's right.  I don't
know how I got it so screwed up.  Anyway, when building the
drivers as *modules* you don't get the opportunity to set the
config options (irq,dma,etc).  The config stuff is either put in
'modules.conf' or provided on the command line that loads the
module, ie, "insmod sb <config options>".  When compiling into the
kernel, nothing has changed.
	Sorry about the mistake.
