Hello,

I'm running a Abit KT7 with 2 IBM 75GXP HDs on the primary controler and a cd-rom and a cheapo old 400 meg HD (to be removed today in fact) and I am running Corel Linux version 2.

I have a really old ISA Soundblaster 16 card, and I used the sndconfig utility however it didn't find it, as it only probes PCI. I looked at isapnp and as well as ALSA but however the howtos and faqs are very confusing to me. Could anyone help with setting up sound in linux?

On my Slave HD on the primary channel, is Windows 98 second edition. Now when I get to the Lilo screen where I can choose between multiply linux boot ups or Windows 98, I choose 98 and then it goes to a black screen with a cursor and then nothing else happens. I know 98 boots fine as I set it to my boot drive in my BIOS. If anyone could help me figure out how to get it to boot in LILO, I'd really apriciate it. Corel does see it Linux though.

Thank you for reading,

-Anthony Inzero

isa sound ...

I have that type of card (years ago :-), you could compile the kernel, at the sound part look for "sound blaster 16" there you will have to put irq, dma & address (generally Add = 220 irq = 5 dma =1 in my ex machine)

For the other problem, dump here your /etc/lilo.conf ...

hda = linux,
hdb = windoze this is right?

Yeah I'm d/l'ing the 2.4.0 kernal at the moment and plan to compile it ect. I read a few HOTTOs (Kernal,Multi-OS) and they cleared stuff up abit for me, so I'm prolly gonna end up re-doing everything like in that HOWTO, but in the mean time I'd like to get this squared away.
