      The alsa drivers are still working for me on my i8000, in fact I'm on
      an mp3 bing right now ;>.

      Here are couple more things to try:

      1. try manually running the contents of the
      /etc/sysconfig/apm-scripts/apmcontinue file I mentioned. That is, do
      this as root (the first command assumes Redhat linux):

      etc/rc.d/init.d/alsasound restart
      /sbin/modprobe snd-mixer-oss
      /sbin/modprobe snd-pcm-oss

      2. The alsa drivers start with the mixer muted by default, so it need
      to be unmuted before you get any sound. I started /usr/bin/alsamixer,
      used the arrow keys to navigate and adjust volume levels, and used the
      "m" key to toggle off the muting. Quit with the escape key. Once it's
      unmuted it should stay unmuted even after a reboot.

      I'm using the stock redhat 7 kernel (2.2.16-22) with no modification,
      although I am running the latest pcmcia drivers from Sourcforge as you
      suggested.

      I did not make any changes to /etc/asound.conf, but here is what's in
      mine:
      # ALSA driver configuration
      # This configuration is generated with the alsactl program.

      soundcard("card1") {
      mixer("ESS Maestro3") {
      ; The type is 'bool'.
      switch("AC97 Mono Output Select", false)
      ; The type is 'bool'.
      switch("AC97 Second MIC", false)
      ; The type is 'bool'.

      Here are the results I get from /sbin/lsmod:

      (the eepro100 line is for the intel-based modem/network card that

      Let me know if you still have trouble.
