For the record, I got the soundcard to work (SIIG Soundwave Pro PCI
with ALS4000 chip).

After spending too much time enabling and disabling kernel options and
playing with BIOS settings for me to still be considered sane, it
occured to me that just maybe the PCI slot was FUBAR. It isn't
completely FUBAR, but switching the video and soundcards made it all

Damn PCI Bus! Why can't we just set resoources with jumpers. If God
meant for mankind to be plug-and-play, he would have given us better
BIOSes ;)
