Would your sound support be *built-into* the motherboard?
AFAIK, I've seen much discussion on this and the shrike list with
problems arising from this. FWIW, I'm running a cheapo 
Ensoniq 64 PCI sound card. Not the latest and greatest, but I get 
sound with CDs, DVD's, RealPlayer, etc...

My preference for Realplayer isn't so much that it's the "most
recent", but because I like the lighter, cleaner interface. My only
gripe is that I cannot (read: haven't figured out / found out how
to) run it as an internal plugin for the browser. Other than that,
I'm quite happy, and as per my original post hearing that
Real Networks is now going open source, can only mean things
will get better for us penguins!
