Well, it is documented in the Sound HOWTO that the PAS16 and the Adaptec
1542 don't coexist.

The only SCSI controller I have is on the PAS16, though. This is in a
Triton motherboard, and the only other cards are the graphics card (an
Orchid Farenheight 1280) and a NE2000 compatible card.

I get the problems when I try to play Doom, like someone else said. I
also get it when I try to use the "str" program from sound-utils-3.5.
