I got a deal on a refurbished model with a 3 year international 
warranty from Dell when I was living in the U.S.  It has been a
workhorse for me for years now. 

I can't be sure now, but I'm fairly certain I had sound 
working when I installed 5.1-RELEASE. I then 
upgraded to current to support my 54g (Atheros) wireless card.

I don't have my laptop with me right now, but I'm fairly 
sure I am running the A12 bios also.

I will do a verbose boot when I get home again (where my
laptop is) and check what mine says.

Mine is enabled (I just ignore the initial error messages).
I don't know whether this has any effect on the PNP devices.

I will need to check. Note however, that my detection message from
dmesg (see my first email) says:

sbc0: <SoundBlaster Pro> at port 0x220-0x22f irq 5 drq 1 flags 0x15 on isa0

so you might want to change hint.pcm.0.flags. I don't know if 
you also need hints for the sbc device?

I have at various times a mouse, external display, pcmcia modem, 
Trendnet ethernet card (also rl0). Nothing seems to affect the sound.

Certainly I can do that as well as check other the other things I noted
above as soon as I get to my laptop at home.
