I now fiddled a little with the PCI settings in the BIOS...

When 'PCI master read cahing' is enabled everything works fine (sound
works, cooling works. When disabled I get sound skips. The above flags
are exactly the same:

Athlon/Duron CLK_Ctrl Value found : fff0d22f
Athlon/Duron CLK_Ctrl Value set to : fff0d22f
Enabling disconnect in VIA northbridge: KT133/KX133 chipset found

As I think i noted earlier, my motherboard is KT133A-based.

My system functions perfectly stable with the 'PCI master read caching'
enabled - I have no idea whether this is true in general.
