mmm...interesting. I've been corresponding w/ Hannu about it,
and he offered to me that if you add "#define NO_SB_IRQ_TEST" to the

file /usr/src/linux/drivers/sound/sb_common.c

that it'd skip part of the init routine. He said that was new
to 2.0.6.

Although, he said that that part of the code "might" be the problem
-- he wasn't sure.

I tried it -- didn't work. "modprobe sound" still hung the machine.

No MIDI, eh? Well, it's worth a shot.

<later>...well I just did -- and it worked. Time to mail Hannu again
