     I am using RH4.2 with kernel 2.0.30. However, it cannot recognize my sound blaster AWE32 (non-PnP), I have rebuilt my kernel many times and the sound card option is already selected (SB support, OPL3 support). No related message (eg. sound blaster initilized, etc) appear during booting. No sound in application. What should I do??

my config: irq=5, dma=1,3, base address=220

Thank you for your help, my kernel now recognize my sound card, but still no sound in any application, when I play midi, play CD, no error message, but no sound.
my config: base address:220 irq:5 dma:1,5

I have choose the "SB pro, 16, clone", "opl3/FM synthesis" ,"the MPU-401 port", "the midi port" when compile my kernel.

P.S. I have an external modem in com2, ps/2 mouse, no other special hardware...

If you are are configuring for the OPL you do not need to compile  the MPU-401.  In fact if you are compiling for an SB16 you should not have the MPU in at all, and since the AWE32 is really just an SB16 with a little extra guts, it relies on the same driver pretty much.  Do you also compile with /dev/audio  this is often missed out... Also is the Opl you chose the generic one or the Yamaha OPL3

I have already choose the /dev/audio...
And about the generic one or Yamaha OPL3, I choose them all...is that the problem?

You should only choose one of the OPL3's it should..."should"be the one which is down the bottom of the list, either way, just one or the other should be O.k...

But there should be another couple of options....but just at the moment I am running Windows, so on that I would have to get back, try what is here first.

Also, might I ask, what is the application you are trying to run with sound?

And check carefully that you are not compiling the Sound as a module, if you are make sure after compiling the kernel you do
make modules
make modules_install
and then in your /etc/rc.d/rc.S file you have to have somewhere

depmod -a

and in order to hear sound later on you must then do something like
insmod {sb16.o}  where sb16.o will actually be the name of the Sound Module, located in the /lib/modules/2.0.30/sound or something similar.

One more thing, have you tried Linux 2.0.29 at all?  it is a lot more stable and not so buggy?  if all else fails this may be an avenue of approach.
