You're on your own with W98.  To fix mandrake, fire up Yoper and see
what's in /etc/modules.conf or /etc/modules that seems relevant to 
your sound card.  (Feel free to post it here.)

Assuming the sound chipset isn't on an ISA card, you might also look
closely at the output of "lspci -v".  That's a command that queries the
PCI controller chip and lists (does "ls" on, so to speak) the results.
You'll want to pipe its output through a pager utility, such as "more"
or "less":

    lspci -v | more

You might need to be the root user, for lspci to give useful output.

Just for your reference, my page on where to find Linux hardware
information is the "Help Resources" link from
http://linuxmafia.com/kb/Hardware/ .  You'll notice that there are links
on the "Help Resources" Web page for USB stuff, and also for wireless

Me, I try hard not to set myself a challenge in two areas at the same
time (e.g., solving wireless issues _and_ USB ones).  But hey, it could
end up being an easy case.
