"Ok, I have been talking to many people who cannot seem to get their Soundblaster 16/pro/32/awe64 working in Slackware 7, so I have decided to write a guide for an interesting way to get them working easily."
"6. Before booting back into linux go into your systems BIOS (usually by hitting the delete key as the machine tests memory) and find a setting called " Plug and Play OS " modify the setting to say OFF or NO , as this setting enabled locks certain settings into the soundblaster irq settings and does not permit Linux from assigning an irq to the soundblaster."
"Hopefully this will help some slackware users out there. "
