Can you help?
The via82cxx_audio module is failing to intialize. This could be because

I have this audio chipset on my mobo at work. I had problems with older
kernels. At one point (2.4.20 or 2.4.21) the modules would load but I'd
STILL get no sound. I'm currently running 2.4.22 and its working.
Modules loaded are:
via82cxxx_audio 20988 0
ac97_codec 13428 0 [via82cxxx_audio]
