avoid creative sb pci of any kind. i highly recommend ESS Audiodrive pci 
soundcards from esstech.com (solo, maestro, allegro). they give the least 
problems when setting up for DOS. if they don't work, other pci sndcards will 
most likely fail also. ESS isa cards don't need drivers, only the correct 
BLASTER= setting.

btw, esstech is NOT ensoniq. the drivers are still available from their 
website. the downside? the official drivers are win installers. i ripped the 
dos versions here:
