Ahh yes those naughty ISA sound cards hmmmm

first one must check if the programme
"sndconfig" is installed
but if you had it working once then it should be there
but check anyway

Then open a terminal in root
and type
and follow all the steps

Note : if you just use the run command in the main menu, it may not work

anyway this should cure it, but from my experience, not permanently, and sooner or later you will be doing it again. It is just one of those mysteries why Mandrake just seems to lose the driver for ISA sound cards

you have two options
1. get good at running snd-config blinfolded
2. buy a PCI sound card

hope this helps
let us know how you get on
