I have a PnP sound balster 16, i had no truble in solaris x86 2.5.1, solaris does not suport PnP on this version, so you have
to configure the card some way, or change some jumpers to convert
it to standard isa card, my SB seems not capable on not working as not PnP but it comes with a disc to configure the irq dma and ports so once configured you should change the configuration on the kernel to get it, the default i think it is Dma 2 irq 5 addres 220h so linux must have a way to configure the the dma
irq and addres in a configuraton file in solaris it is in
/platform/pc86i/kernel/drv/*.conf

so i used the dafault it is the same that has solaris so i worked
like a real Pnp i dident have that much luck with a modem card
that i had to disable PnP and configure a irq manualy and
configure ther driver in solaris.

so try configuring your card for a tipic configuration check for conflicts with a dos program to chek irq conflicts too to be shure. and then configure ther driver in linux to get the SB
