I don't think you can disable hardware, but I do know you can disable your onboard soundcard in the Bios. You should have a section called "Integrated Peripherals" or something similar.


Good luck.

I'm getting accustomed to Gimp 2.0 . It's a lot like photoshop, which I know relatively well, but it does take a ton of getting used to as it's the little things that take time to learn. I'm not sure you will ever get Photoshop working fluentlty in WINE as WINE is designed to run simple programs that don't call on too many other files outside of the excutable, like solitaire and the original lemmings; I could be wrong though.
