Oh, bugger.  I should have let people know what my status was ;).

I grabbed some files from amancio's machine, and found one that seemed to be
2.1-ish related.  I replaced the sound directory in sys/i386/isa with that,
and, voila, it worked.

However, mine says *NOTHING* like that!  I am confused, now.  (The machine
is offright now because it's a power-mad beastie, and dreadfully insecure as
well, so I don't leave it on when I'm not home, generally.)

On the other hand, mine *does* work, and I can even get it to play musinc
and whatnot.  (And, using this "rsynth program in ports, I can get it to say
its own name.  I'm so proud of it.  And it's only three weeks old. *sniff*)

>(The PnP tar.gz file in /incoming on freefall has a 2.1.5 patch too)

Hm.  Fascinating.  THe stuff I grabbed was sound-specific, so I assum
ethat's why mine works, although it doesn't print out the neat stuff yours
does.  My card also has no ram on it (which I will probably fix soon, since
30 pin simm's are dirt cheap.)
