SB AWE64 configuration problem

Hello all,

I finally got around to trying to get my SB AWE64 sound card
configured.  I am still using the default kernel that I installed
with.  I believe that it has the correct sound drivers as modules, so
I shouldn't need to recompile the kernel to get sound working.  I
believe my isapnp.conf is valid, because I had it working with a
previous RedHat install.  The awe_wave module is loaded at boot.
Following the advice of previous posters, I did a 'insmod uart401;
insmod opl3; insmod sb io=0x220 irq=5 dma=1 dma16=5 mpu_io=0x330;
insmod v_midi; insmod awe_wave'.

Here is what lsmod outputs:

geldar:/boot# lsmod

Here is the contents of /proc/sound:

geldar:/boot# cat /proc/sound 
Load type: Driver loaded as a module
Kernel: Linux geldar 2.2.17 #1 Sun Jun 25 09:24:41 EST 2000 i686

Card config: 

Audio devices:
0: Sound Blaster 16 (4.16) (DUPLEX)

Midi devices:
0: Sound Blaster 16
1: Loopback MIDI Port 1
2: Loopback MIDI Port 2
3: AWE Midi Emu

0: System clock

0: Sound Blaster

I don't understand why it doesn't say anything under Installed drivers
or Card config.  The example /dev/sndstat in the Sound-HOWTO has stuff
in those sections, so I'm thinking this is not good.

Is there something I'm missing here?


P.S. Note to will trillich: this might be one for the newbie faq?
Seems like there's an awful lot of AWE64s out there.
