If I'm reading that right, this is a P2 era board with a 3com NIC, 3? ATI video cards, a cable capture card... and NO sound card. If there's a sound card in there, is it hooked up right? Or is it an ISA card? If its an ISA card, look at the biggest chip on it and post what it says back here... yeah, its that annoying, gotta love ISA...

yea, you're reading it right. The soundcard is on board, and I thought it as PCI. I guess not. I modprobed the isa version of the modules and everything worked fine. Thanks for pointing out the obvious to me.

Maybe this helps (heard/read it somewhere): most of the on-board audiocards are AC'97.
And I'm sure there's a driver for that one waiting for you to install it
