i've just bought an ibm 390x old laptop.
there is probably neomagic256av sound/graphic (?) card in it.
i'm trying to configure soundcard but it is not easy.
there are some threads about it in group archive, but i haven't found any
complete solution.
there are advices to start linux from msdos (i'm not sure if i like it) and
some else which doesn't work for me.
if i configure my card as ESS ES1969, i can hear only some noise when i try
to play mp3.
in linux kernel 2.6.0 soundcard support has been much changed. oss has
become depreciated. the primary sound architecture is now alsa. may be there
is a method to configure this card in this new kernel?

please help,
