OK, I popped the case. There's no soundcard in the PCA slots so it must
be on the motherboard somewhere.... I don't have a clue where to
connect that CD cable. My dealer said this machine used a newer
architecture but it can't be that new! Are there any linux settings or
linux cd-playing software that get around this problem?
