I'm running a dual boot system win98 and Open Linux 2.2.  Everytime a try to load any sound card kernel it tells me resource busy.  I've checked in my bios for any PnP options and have found none.  I was woundering what else could be causing this problem?

Edited text of question.
If you don't have an option to clear your PnP information in your bios, check your motherboard documentation for clearing NVRAM or clearing your bios by a jumper.  If you have an older system, it is probably a jumper.  I would reseat the cards.  If you have the modem set to manually receive a fax in windows, it could be the cause of the modem problem.  Click start/run and type in msconfig.  Click on the startup tab and uncheck anything that isn't necessary, especially anything modem-related. Those are background processes that you aren't using that are zapping your video, processor and memory in windows. If you have a PnP bios, the option would be "Reset Configuration Data".  Some have ESCD, DMI and both for options.
