You should be using pci and not vlb, vlb has gone out with the 486's it was a kind of local bus designed mostly for ide and video boards but is not longer in use or made. Your sound card must be pci because your asus has doe's not have any vlb slots and only isa and pci slots.

thanks for the help but already figured it out, the problem stemmed from the fact that the people i bought the system from supplied the wrong software, as such it was making the wrong calls to the pnp bus & 32 bit bios which kept crashing the kernel
once I figured out that the sound chip was c-media and the software drivers was for a yamaha opl3sa, but thanks for getting back to me though. I do appreciate it.
