Well, I found that the problem is not with the sound card, thanks to you guys. 
Bjorn gave me a tip in the options cs4232 line with the mpuirq=10, and I got 
it up and running, but only in console. Yep, in tty1, I was able to play an 
mp3 with mp3blaster.

But when I get over to the graphical side, running XMMS completely locks up 
the system. The mouse is dead, the keyboard is dead, the whole freakin' 
thing. It doesn't crash until a sound is made. Attempting to play an mp3 
kills it, and generating a tone with the tone generator plugin kills the 
system. So then I wondered if it was something about the sound system, and I 
installed Kaboodle, and attempted to play an mp3. Same deal. DOA.

I am wondering if its and IRQ problem, but it doesn't seem so. Now, I appear 
to be using IRQ9 for mpu and IRQ 5 for sound. IRQ 9 does not show up in 
/proc/interrupts, however IRQ 5 is shown to be used by Crystal Audio 

Where do I go from here?
