Should not make any difference. When such devices are on the motherboard they are implemented as if they were on a card. > I ran kldload snd.ko, but it didn't seem to do anything to my > dmesg.

It should be metioned when its attached in dmesg. But other thing to do is type "mixer" to see if something exits. http://www.matsonic.com/faq.htm#Sound%20Pro%20Audio%20FAQs suggests your sound is a CMI8330 which is mentioned in /sys/dev/sound/isa/mss.c and would be supported by /modules/snd_mss.ko. However, its in the ISA catagory which means you have a PnP issue between your MB, BIOS, and FreeBSD. Its not called "Plug and Pray" without cause. You don't say whether the sound works under Windows? Look for an item in your BIOS config for "PnP OS". Try changing it to whatever it currently is not. Look for a setting to disable the sound card feature on the MB. May be labeled "AC97". If PC hardware worked the way it was supposed to it would be a Macintosh. -- David Kelly N4HHE, [EMAIL PROTECTED] ===================================================================== The human mind ordinarily operates at only ten percent of its capacity -- the rest is overhead for the operating system.
