Puppy Linux 4 - Sound on Compag Armada 1750 Laptop

Puppy 4 runs well on my old Compag Armada 1750 laptop except for the sound card. Please advise a simple, step by step method of configuring the sound. Otherwise a great linux laptop!

Have a look at this link. This person describes getting sound going on this machine.

Read through the description. Go as far as you can. Post specific questions when you get to a step you do not understand. This is as close as you will get to a "step by step" set of instructions.

Here is another link with someone who has sound working. This is the sound module ( called a driver in windoze speak ).

Card Configuration options: rev=11 at 0x220, irq=5, dma=1
I would expect that module would be available from almost any distro.
