I have a Creative Labs Sound Blaster PnP ISA card.  I'm rebuilding my kernel, so what do I need to say 'yes' or 'module' to in 'make menuconfig'?

In other words which Linux driver is for this sound card??

Go to the sound option in xconfig and select soudblaster support.

You can also use menuconfig to select the soundblaster support. IMHO xconfig is a little easier to use (if you have X running).

" I used only menuconfig is xconfig significantly different"

It offers exactly the same options - its just a differnet interface. Xconfig is a graphical interface to configuring your kernel. Menuconfig is an ncurses interface which can be run without  xwindows running.

I don't think I deserve (all) the points: owensleftfoot was the first to point you to the config tool.
