Soundcard Problem

Hi I loaded MD 8.2 on an old machine so that the kids could use internet and stuff...
Here is my problem, the machine has an ISA soundcard it:

Vendor: Aztech
Model: AZT3000
Kernel Module: unknown
Bus Type: ISA

Harddrake seems to recognize it however when I try play sound I get the following error message

'error while initializing the sound driver - device dev/dsp can't be opened (no such file or directory)
The sound server will continue running with null output

I ran sndconfig and it located and correctly identified the card but gave the following output:

The following error occurred running the modprobe program: ?
? ?
? /lib/modules/2.4.18-6mdk/kernel/drivers/sound/ad1848.o.gz: ?
? init_module: No such device ?
? modprobe: insmod ?
? /lib/modules/2.4.18-6mdk/kernel/drivers/sound/ad1848.o.gz ?
? failed ?
? modprobe: insmod sound-slot-0 failed

TIA for any input you may have for me! Tim

Would it be too hard to pick up and install an old SB Vibra 128 pci? All in all that would be eiser than getting an ISA card going with a modern distro.
