Re: Feeling a lot stupid
- On Sound Cards, your best bet is Creative Labs.
Just make sure that you don't get one lastest cards,
like new MP3 what-ever it is called. The Sound Blaster
Live, PCI 128, and of course the Sound Blaster 16 work
great. If you can't afford a Creative Labs make sure
that your card can use the Sound Blaster Drivers, just
like the old Dos day when you wanted to play games.
You want to have fun setting up a sound card, trying
setting up SuSE on PPC. It's a nightmare to set up sound
even with YaST2. When you get your card working. Play
with XMMS it great, it's Winamp for Linux. I love to
sit and listen to Shoutcast with and my mp3's.

got SuSE 9.1 and I love it. I think you are right about
YaST and SuSE. It was easy to install and networked to
my windows (sorry) machine flawlessly. I got on this site
to see what was being posted . . .
