FINALLY! 2003 Audio

SB Audigy was a bust, as was the SiiG DP Soundwave.

The Virtual Audio Card drivers worked fine for TVersity, but not for light desktop use.

Well, luckily, I stumbled onto an SB Live! 5.1 Dell edition card for $9. SB Live! cards work fine in 2003. WOOT!.

Also, when I reflashed the SIL-3124 card to BASE firmware rather than RAID firmware, the older PE400SC was happy to boot from it. I now have Linux back on a separate system. Unfortunately, my Toshiba DVD-ROM from ages past causes constant bus resets. It's a minor issue, because I have no disks on that bus. Still, it overflows the DMESG buffer, and makes boot require manual intervention. Also, all of the RAID are in an external bay because I can't fit 5 drives AND cooling inside the system.

Still, I have a $25 PATA DVD-RW drive on order and I should be set after that.

*knock on wood*
