As far as i know there is no real easy way to do this, depending on the
chipset the soundcard uses cd to /lib/modules/`uname -r`/sound and insert
the module that your card uses.

make sure you are not root, the debian netscape launcher will refuse to
load netscape if you are root, or you could comment the lines of the
script out.  it would of been nice if they had used xmessage to show a
message in X. if that doesnt work, launch an xterm and type 'netscape' and
see what error(s) you get.
