This is the first reply I have received. The first one must have gotten
lost in the internet somewhere. I was beginning to wonder what happened.

If it looks normal, in the output of "cat", it's plain text.

Good. That means that the blacklist is working or the chip is on the

I don't see anything obviously wrong at first glance. I'll take a closer
look and reply if I see a problem.

That's a problem. We need that. Install cdtool as well.

That tells us two things: (1) the chip is not on the internal modem
card that you removed, and (2) the blacklist is working. That makes
me wonder though. Is the sound chip on the motherboard? Is there any
evidence that the manufacturer intended it to be the sound chip for
the system? Are there audio jacks on the back of the system for
speakers, microphone, line-in, line-out, etc. that are *not* on the
edge connector of your sound card? Did you install the Sound Blaster
Live card as an after-market add-on? Or did it come with the machine?
