I have to second nate's recommendation on the sound. I have a Soyo
P4VDA motherboard with this sound chip. I've tried compiling the
2.4.19 kernel with the appropriate sound built in and as modules with
no success. I've also gone the ALSA way with no success. The closest
I can get is with ALSA, where the machine acts as though sound is
working, but I can't actually hear anything. Building it into the
kernel, or as modules for the kernel, always gives me a "not
supported" message when it loads.
