Re: getting sound started
welll... I did lspci -vv my system, and got a positive response on the

But I confess I'm not sure where to go from here. Alsa doesn't seem to
support this card (unless I'm mistaken); and in any event alsa-base
wouldn't install with dpkg (couldn't find the snd module, it said).
I've installed the ac97 modules in the kernel, but haven't tried a major
recompile for fear of screwing up my already-delicate system. Any
hints? thanks loads,
