get any of the 'free' drivers to work on this machine. Some of my
attempts to configure alsasound have resulted in catastrophic system
I was successful in loading the OSS drivers, but only after I had
upgraded my kernel to 2.4.16, since the OSS driver was compiled for that
I'm running SuSE 7.3 with a kernel from the unsupported ~mantel directory
on the SuSE site.
After my initial tests, I let the trial period expire, and I haven't yet
ordered a permanent license.
