I accidentally stumbled upon a solution to this problem with Lenny
and a CS4237B sound chip on my IBM ThinkPad 600 laptop.  It involves
modifying the boot scripts to add a particular "cat" command.
Don't ask me why it works, but it does.  I don't know if it will work
for you in your situation, but you can give it a try.

Here's the link --> http://www.wowway.com/~zlinuxman/tp600.htm

Good luck.
