Yeah, my ensonic card has been rather easily installed by Mandrake and
Redhat in the past. Oddly enough Redmond Linux correctly identified the type
of sound card, but for some reason it couldn't install it. I know the card
is working because I put my hard drives in drawers which can be easily
replaced with, e.g. another hard drive with Win98 on it.
    I've never understood when after installing Linux the sound card doesn't
work yet one part of the Linux OS knows what kind of sound card is on the
board while another part of the SAME OS on the Same drive when queried about
sound card info reports that the sound card is unknown. This is sort of like
the left hand of the Linux OS not knowing what the right hand is doing
:-)) --Al Johnson.
