What kind of Windows is it? It it's some 9x version, chances are that 
the Windows drivers you have already are installing their DOS 
counterpart in autoexec & config.sys files.

If that's the case, it would just be a matter of copying the required 
files from your windows installation, note the exact entries added to 
autoexec & config.sys, and replicate the whole stuff on your DOS-only PC.

First step would be to look into your autoexec.bat and config.sys files 
on the Windows installation - do you see anything related to your sound 
card there?
