I'm failing miserably with my ancient AWE32 ISA non PnP sound card :).
I can't afford to replace it now, but when I can, are there any companys that support Linux? Creative seems to suck majorly.

The SB Live series is compatible. I'm not sure about the new funky top of the line ones, but my sound problems ended when I bought a SB Value card for 30 beans a year or two ago. You should have no problem with the plain low-end ones. Cheaper too. :wink:

Hope that helps.

The SB Live Value card works great. Just use the emu10k driver and all should work. As the other poster mentioned, you can pick these up for a song on ebay or other places.

Went rummaging i a box of junk. Discovered that I had an old ISA PnP AWE 64, so I'm going to use that.

Thanks

I'm not a big Creative fan. Looks like there isn't much of a choice though. Which is directly related to my first statement ;)
