I have installed Mandrake 7.0. I am using a notebook(see specs under 'Computer' below)and have three problems:
I am unable to load my sound card although it is included in the
/usr/sbin/sndconfig file. It is a Yamaha OPL-SAx. I have followed the
instructions in the manual.
DMA = O; 1
I am also unable to load my PCMCIA modem card (message is that it is 'busy'. The card is an Option International 56k V90 Rockwell chip) GSM. I have used:
$ Ln-s /dev/ttyS2 (COM3) /dev/modem to load it, but no result, although the
boot log shows pcmcia as loaded.
x03E8 - x03F
IRQ = 9 (no conflicts)
Although I have a 16bit display (works under wIN98), Mandrake only allows
for 8bit. The screen is Panasonic EDTCB11QBF 13.3" XGA TFT LCD 1024x768, with C&T 65555 VGA chipset

Your information would be very much appreciated. I am, however, not a
programmer, but an end-user trying to move over from Microsoft to Linux.
