Running slackware eh? Then you're going to have some trouble getting it
first off, you need to find out what resources the card uses.
If it's a PCI card look in /proc/pci and find your card there.
If it's an ISA card look in /proc/interrupts (or /proc/irq I think..
this differs among distributions) and /proc/dma
You'll also need to play with the pnptools package. Look for it on
Once you know that, if it is a PNP card you'll have to create a module
for the sound card driver (cd /usr/src/linux;make xconfig to mess with
the kernel config) and then insmod or modprobe the module.
Don't forget to edit /etc/conf.modules too.
It's a bit hairy, the RedHat sndconfig program takes care of practically
all of the above..
Look through the howtos (http://www.linuxdoc.org/) for more info.
http://www.linuxnewbie.com and Owens' BLG on http://www.linux.ie have
more info too.
