Sound Card fails after error message...

I've built my own computer (475mhz AMD, 96 mb ram, spacewalker 591p mobo)  and I put a cheep sound card in it that i won online auctioning.  after i install everthing, win98, drives (which I've done 5 or so times)  i get an error message after start up called MMtask.tsk has been performed illegally, contact vendor...etc..
right afterwards, my sound cuts off.
Drivers are up to date, no irq conflicts.. do i just need a new sound card??  thank you.

Try to replace this file from the WIN98 original disc.  If that doesn't work, you gave yourself the right answer, the card is "cheep". Get rid of it.
