pnp sound problems

The essentials:
I am running Slackware 8.1 on a Compaq DeskPro
200 Mhz Pentium MMX processor.

I have been trying to get sound to work for a few days now after installing Slackware. I have an Ensoniq SoundScape Pnp card. I configured 'isapnp' with 'pnpdump -c' and when I run 'isapnp' it works. I then try to load the 4 modules needed to run sound, 'sound.o' , 'mpu401.o' , ' ad1848.o' and 'sscape.o' . The first two load fine, ' ad1848' loads but it sends a message to 'dmesg', "No ISAPnP cards found, trying standard ones...." .
'sscape.o will then not load (and I have been specifying the DMA, IDE and IO settings that 'isapnp' returns), it leves a 'dmesg' "detect_sscape_pnp: port ffffffff is not free"
Does anyone know what I am doing wrong? I suspect that I need to get 'ad1848' to recognise the card before 'sscape.o' will work, but how do I do this and why does 'sscape.o' think the port is not free?
Any help would be appreciated, as I want to be able to listen to and burn CDs and MP3s.

Thanks in advance,
