ALS100 Sound Blaster PnP configuration

I am having some problems configuring my ALS100 card...I have tried using isapnp to configure the card...once the isapnp.conf file was created, I ran isapnp /etc/isapnp.conf followed by insmod sound...I got the error message:

kernel_version needed, but can't be found

Read carefully the Readme files, you will notice that the support provided to try to solve the PnP problem is very limited (usually to 2 or 3 adapters). I worked for several days trying to put to work a modme and a SCSI card and they never worked, so I sugest you disable the PnP features of your card (I know, and what about W95? , well you can always give manually the parameters of your card choosing and equivalent driver that is not PnP)

Yes, it is almost impossible to get it going but disabling plug and play in my bios was about the first thing i tried.

Thank you anyway
