      memory serves, I think this has  a Matrox card.  I've tried
      adding a few sound [snd_*.ko] files, but no sound.  The OSS

      Any help out there?  This old box is an HP Kayak "XU/XW".
I solved most of my sound problems by taking actions reading

	Hm.  I forgot about adding the "hints.*"; but catenating
	/dev/sndstat indicates that I use snd_sb16.ko and compiling that
	in gives me a bunch of fatal undefines.  So I added "snd_sbc"
to the KERNCONF and am recompiling.
	Shouldn't be this hard; this worked with REdhat, just
	straightaway.  ....

What model's the card (or what does pciconf -lv report at least)?

	This is strange.  A couple hours ago I kldloaded a few modules
	and saw that the card was my missing AWE64.  Now, when I load
	snd_sb16, it looks like an ISA SB 16.  It could be either.
	Note that if I load just snd_sb.ko, cat'ing /dev/sndstat returns
	zip.
	Still trying...


	Interesting: I scripted them ALL in and ind that there are TWO
	sound cards::

pcm0: <SB16 DSP 4.16> at io 0x240 irq 9 drq 1:5 bufsz 4096 kld snd_sb16
(1p/1r/0v channels duplex default)
pcm1: <AD1816> at io 0x500 irq 5 drq 0:3 bufsz 8192 kld snd_ad1816
(1p/1r/0v channels duplex)

	Suggestions?

Not 100% sure, but it looks like your soundcard involves the sb driver and there might be a separate driver for your card:
