Unhappy REDHAT 7.3 CPU PrOBLEMS???

Hey fellow Linux users, have a little dilemnae here, on my BOX a Compaq deskpro 2000/166 , I installed Rhat 7.3 over my trusty old Rhat 6.0 I fits my Hdrive ok (3gig) But,ICANT get SNDconFIG to operate/recognize my SOUNDBLASTER 16 CARD.

It always worked FINE on old Rhat 6.0 ,could play CDs , sound effects worked.

But what gives with this Funkiness with Rhat7.3 ,Could it be that My CPU is 166 ???? , <my 7.3 Distro from DUMMIES book says on Back Cover 200m mhz , as listed on SYSTem REQuirements.

Do want to experience a NEWR distro ,but might be forced to go back to 6.0 and (blahh-Windows) .

Thankxx, chilibowl

# Find out CPU specifications
cat /proc/cpuinfo

Is that a pci or isa card?

# What pci cards are installed and what irq/port is used
cat /proc/pci
