Grab some kernel source and rebuild it with support for your sound card and
IP firewalling.  For more detailed information, read the Sound-HOWTO and
Firewall-HOWTO, both of which are in the doc-linux-html and doc-linux-text
packages (depending on whether you prefer HTML or plain text) or can be
turned up pretty easily with a web search.  (I'd recommend installing one of
the doc packages, though - there are a _lot_ of HOWTOs, all packed with good
information, so you'll probably want them as close and easily found as
