I've discovered that if I create a file named /etc/modutils/sound and
put in it the line:
options sb io=0x220 irq=5 dma=1 dma16=5 mpu_io=0x330

then I no longer get the error message. The sound card mostly works now.
It can't seem to play .WAV files (with splay); and if I move the mouse
(PS/2) while playing an MP3 in freeamp the sound gets garbled as long as
I'm moving the mouse. Yet a "cat /proc/interrupts" shows the
soundblaster to be on 5 and the ps/2 on 12.

I've been playing with Linux for two years now, and I just don't
comprehend how to get hardware to work properly. Oh well, maybe the
market will give me another two years to learn before Linux dominates
