1. Yup, you can access all of them from linux either with linux apps or the windows versions running in Wine, the Win emulator.

2. You said RH9 was the distro so google for compatible soundcards, pick one for your budget and buy it. Open Source drivers normally have good instructions or at least there will be instructions on the net somewhere.

Hope this helps

Er,

Dunno about the file sharing thing,

but the soundblaster range of cards seem to be popular and well supported - I use a soundblaster live! 5.1 digital, and it uses the emu10k1 driver - works great for me!

regards

John

I like my Yamaha card. It's a cheapie, but it supports "multi-open" -- which means that more than one program can use /dev/dsp at one time and it will mix the results. It's a hell of a lot better than messing with esd and aRts. I can even have esd and arts running and still be able to use programs that require /dev/dsp. No other card (that I've seen) has that feature.
