Linux won't boot--Sound card conflict?

Hi everyone,<br><br>

Some background: I Have a dual boot win98/lnux(RH 7.1) box, use loadlin to boot from vmlinuz kernel, Soundblaster PCI 128 sound card.<br><br>

I installed the sound card some time ago and it always got on nicely with win and linux. Yesterday I decided to install some software that came with the Creative Labs CD(players, mixer, "keytar(?)" etc).<br><br>
Now when I try to boot into linux the screen mentions some stuff about SB PCI which scroll past to fast to get a good read. Then the line: OK, booting kernel...
At which point it crashes. No error messages.<br><br>
Ok, so I boot up using the emergency boot disk. Next I try to use the command mkbootdisk(which is mentioned in Que's _Using Red Hat Linux 6.2_) to update vmlinuz. Answer: no such command. <br><br>
<br><br>So I try to go to K->Root File Manager thinking I can find something in there for updating vmlinuz--and X crashes!<br><br>
So I use <Ctr><Alt><F1>to get to a terminal, su and type rm /tmp/.X0-lockm, thinking to re-startx--no dice. X remains crashed but still "running".<br><br>
So I'm stuck here in MSland until I can straighten this mess out.<br><br>
Any ideas?
