When i go to do a setup for the sound in duke nukem 3d i change the sound settings for my sound card and then i try to test it and it says there is a conflicting irq... but then i test out the music and it works fine. And i get the same problem with Redneck Rampage.. and ive tried in both MS-DOS and Windows 95.

The music and sounds effects use different parts of your sound card.  In your AUTOEXEC.BAT file, check for/add a line that looks like this:
     SET BLASTER=A220 I5 D1 H5 P330
Axxx= I/O Address of the card (sound effects)
Ix= IRQ of the sound card
Dx= Low DMA Channel
Hx= High DMA Channel (Midi sound)
Pxxx= Midi port

Use your values in this format.  Something in you software setup is messed up.  Just got to find where.  Let me know what happens.

ryans is on the money, you will have to specify the correct setting card for both Music, and FX

Blaster and midi output are two different things. It is not surprisingly, nor uncommon for a program to only work with one, midi being the usual working device as it is quite universal in it's drivers and requirements.

To fix the normal soundblaster problem, do as ryans says and you should be fine.

Hope this helps,
