Sound driver and xquake problem

After reading a post about the Linux Quake release, I downloaded the
software and ran it on a 2.0.3 kernel. The sound failed and crashed the
program with a floating point exeption.

mprotect(0x8043000, 4064, PROT_READ|PROT_WRITE|PROT_EXEC) = 0
write(2, "writable code 804420c-8044732\n", 30writable code 804220c-8044732) = 30
mprotect(0x8044000, 1842, PROT_READ|PROT_WRITE|PROT_EXEC) = 0
--- SIGFPE (Floating point exception) ---
+++ killed by SIGFPE +++

Runs fine with -nosound, but what fun is that?

After bringing down the 2.0.4 patch (and adding the missing ; to
sb_common.c), I tried again. Big nada.

I rebooted my system with 1.3.80 and ran xquake. Sound!

Has something changed in the code for a Soundblaster 16?
