Greetings.  I'm trying to get sound support working for my Sony laptop and
FreeBSD 4.0-STABLE (CVSup'ed a few days ago) and I think I'm missing
something obvious but am stuck at the moment.

dmesg reports:
sbc0: <Soundblaster Pro> at port 0x220-0x22f irq 5 drq 1 flags 0x15 on isa0
pcm1: <SB DSP 3.01> on sbc0

So at least it appears to be finding the card which is great.  However, I
was uncertain where to go from there.  /dev/mixer, /dev/sbc0, /dev/pcm1, and
several other devices I knew I needed were missing.  I finally got some
setup by running "sh MAKEDEV snd*" which I now believe was a mistake since
I'm using the new pcm system rather than snd, right?  Either way, using
those devices just fails with a "Device not configured" error.

I'm continuing to dig through this and will definitially post my full config
once I get everything working, but I was hoping someone else here might have
already configured sound for this laptop.  Pointers much appreciated.  Let
me know if there's any info I can provide that would help.
