Thanks very much for this. A few more questions. The instructions say:

0. _Remove_ _all_ sound support in your kernel! Do this first before
   anything else!
1. Extract, dump everything into your kernel directory typically
   "/boot/kernel"
2. kldxref /boot/kernel
3. cp soundcard.h /usr/include/sys/
4. Reload _ALL_ sound modules, or, reboot.

Is it necessary to recompile the kernel without sound support, if it has 
previously been compiled in? Would this mean compiling it without device 
sound?

Does "dump everything" mean use dump, or could they just be copied? If dump, 
how is it used?

Oliver
