I have a GUS MAX that I've been trying to get to work with no success
for the past few generations of the sound driver.  This may be because
my machine can't run DOS (and therefore Gravis' DOS initialization
program).  If it is to be of use to me, I need the card to work
without requiring DOS.  Can anyone with more experience in dealing
with these things comment?

BTW, the failure mode that I see is that, in playing an audio file,
the first second or three comes out just fine (but LOUD), and then
something gets stuck in an infinite loop playing the same sound over
and over again.  The play program gets stuck in an uninterruptible
wait in the audio driver (ick!).  Perhaps an IRQ register isn't
getting initialized right?
