Soundblaster installation problem.


I've been trying to set up a Soundblaster ISA card under Debian.  The
card (AWE64 I think) works fine under Redhat with sndconfig, albeit
with slightly different hardware.  I have 4 IDE devices installed, 2
PCI NICs and a PCI ATI graphics card.

I'm using a modular 2.2.13 kernel.  If I do the following:-

modprobe sound
insmod uart401
insmod sb io=0x220 irq=5 dma=1 dma16=5 mpu_io=0x330

the kernel logs give

Nov 27 23:04:39 monkey kernel: Soundblaster audio driver Copyright (C) by Hannu Savolainen 1993-1996
Nov 27 23:04:39 monkey kernel: SB 170.170 detected OK (220)
Nov 27 23:04:39 monkey kernel: sb: Interrupt test on IRQ5 failed - Probable IRQ conflict

so, as it says, there may be an IRQ conflict.  However, I don't think so.

/proc/interrupts gives

  0:      60622          XT-PIC  timer
  1:       3295          XT-PIC  keyboard
  2:          0          XT-PIC  cascade
  5:          0          XT-PIC  soundblaster
 10:         20          XT-PIC  eth1
 11:        104          XT-PIC  eth0
 12:       6070          XT-PIC  PS/2 Mouse
 13:          1          XT-PIC  fpu
 14:       5341          XT-PIC  ide0
 15:         34          XT-PIC  ide1

so all seems fine.

What am I missing?  Thanks in advance for any hints.
