    I've seen something like this yesterday on ECS P6EXP-Me board (i440EX
    chipset) with onboard CMI8338 PCI sound chip. The sound was distorted
    when e.g. moving mouse in Windows. When I disabled "PCI 2.1 support" in
    BIOS, the problem disappeared in Windows. But when I booted Slax LiveCD,
    the same problem appeared - so I think that Linux enables something
    that's causing these problems with some PCI sound devices on these chipsets.
