Well, I had a motherboard toast the built in video interface,
though the machine otherwise seemed to work ok. I pulled out
the discs, and stuck them into a spare box I had lying around,
and pulled the other interesting peripherals, like the CD-ROM
and DVD-ROM drives, etc, and rebooted. After some chit chat with
kudzu, the machine came up, and everything worked. Except the
built in sound peripheral on the motherboard. Now, this is odd
because it's just an ordinary '97 style chip.

tried the GNOME SystemSettings->Soundcard Detection and
that found and made it work. That's very odd, since the
hardware was previously detected, and showed up in the

Anyway, after fiddling for months, a simple click has made
my sound, like the cat, come back.
