I have an ESS1688 AudioDrive, too.
I've configured with sndconfig (--noprobe options, otherwise a core dump).
Wav and internal midi works OK, but not external midi.
(And doom's musserver says that it can't find /dev/sequencer, though it exists actually).

I have in modules.conf "alias sound sb" and "alias midi opl3".
My /etc/sndstat gives:

[~]# cat /dev/sndstat
Sound Driver:3.5.4-960630
Kernel: Linux localhost.localdomain 2.0.32 #1 Wed Nov 19 00:46:45 EST 1997
i586
Config options:
Installed drivers:

Card config:

Audio devices:
0: ESS ES1688 AudioDrive (rev 11)

Synth devices:
0: Yamaha OPL-3

Midi devices:

Timers:
0: System clock

Mixers:
0: Sound Blaster


note that midi port mpu401 is not recognized).
I also tried to launch mpu401 module, but it didn't work.
Please, help.
