I've actually not touched sound at all, mostly because every new version
of OSS lite that Hannu has done for 2.0.x has had some weird bugs. Initially
I thought it must be Hannu but since I've started hacking the sound code I feel
a great deal of sympathy for the man. SB clones are worse and weirder than
NE2000 clones.

If you want to do upgrade your sound its probably best to get both the awedrv
and the current OSS 3.8 for 2.0.x and see how they go for you. If they work
for your combination they are way better than the 2.0 sound code. If not
well diff -R ;)
