Initalising sound cardr Linux: Aztech Pro16c

I have a rebadged Aztech pro16c sound card based on he AZT2316
chipset. I am trying to get the card to work in Linux with no success. I
remember some time ago that it worked correctly when I booted into
DOS and then used loadlin to boot linux. I've not bitten the bullet and got
rid of dos altogether and use linux excelusively.

My question is how do I now get the sound card to work. I've been able
to get midi files to play but I've had no success with wav or au files. I've
been using the OSS driver which gives the error "problem trying to
initialise IRQ 5 ? confilct" however I don't think I have anything on that
IRQ.

Any responses would be grateful

You need to compile Soundblaster support and Microsft Sound System support into the kernel. If you still have problems the commercial version of the OSS drivers($20) says it will support your card and if it doesn't work you can get more technical help since you have paid for it(www.opensound.com).
