Soundcard. . .

Alright I installed a Sound Blaster Live! 24-bit soundcard and it works fine in Windows, but when I try to configure it with Yast2 I get this error. . .

"The kernel module snd-audigyls for sound support could not be loaded. This can be caused by incorrect module parameters, including invalid IO or IRQ parameters."

I am on Suse Pro 9.2 by the way, I really want to get this working. . .

Just a shot in the dark, does your motherboard have onboard sound and if so can you disable it in the bios

As I say just a guess

1) I can't seem to get into the BIOS, the Grub2 Bootloader comes up too fast.

2) Yast2 knows it is there it just can't configure it.

Is your card an Audigy LS? If not then yast is trying to load the wrong driver. As I understand it Sound Blaster Live! uses snd-emu10k1 driver...

I tried installing it as a Sound Blaster Live also and I get the same error, with a different module.
