I've found that FreeBSD so far has supported every odd sound card
I've thrown its way.

Even (especially!) those on-board sound things built into
motherboards and laptops these days.  FreeBSD supports them all (and
Windows usually doesn't without the special CD-Rom from the
motherboard manufacturer.)

Just add "device pcm" to the end of the kernel conf file, build a
new kernel, and I'll bet almost any sound card will work on reboot.

This question has been answered many times on this question list.

No sound card will work without this kernel device added.
You have more than enough HD space to compile the kernel.

bolts, a wrench and a copy of the seat-HOWTO.html. Once settled, the
fully adjustable seat is very comfortable, the plane leaves and
arrives on time without a single problem, the in-flight meal is
wonderful. You try to tell customers of the other airlines about the
great trip, but all they can say is, "You had to do what with the
