PnP sound card in 2.1.102pre-2

On caveat of a friend I decided not to try 2.1.102, but the 2.1.101 +
2.1.102-pre-2 patch.
I have had a PnP sound card installed in my computer for ages, but have not
bothered to set it up--now I have been toying with isapnp, and pnpdump along
with a little reading of isapnp.conf, I have configured my sound card.
The response to IDENTIFY * says:
Board 1 has Identity 27 ff ff ff ff 68 18 73 16: ESS1868 Serial No 4294967295
[checksum 27]
I originally compiled 2.1.101 with sound and SB and MIDI and all that jaz built
into the kernel, but now I realized what PnP means (duh :))
I am running on a 486, no PnP BIOS. HP Vectra 486 DX/33
While loading the modules, sb.o reports:
init_module: Device or resource busy

This is my little script for loading the sound modules (at the shell prompt; the
PnP devices are configured by /etc/rc.d/rc.kernel/rc.pnp during startup)
insmod sound
insmod uart401
insmod sb io=0x0220 irq=5 dma=0 dma16=5 mpu_io=0x0330
insmod opl3 io=0x0388
insmod v_midi

This is the /etc/isapnp.conf configuration for my sound card:
(IO 0 (BASE 0x0220))
(IO 1 (BASE 0x0330))
(IO 2 (BASE 0x0388))
(INT 0 (IRQ 5 (MODE +E)))

Can anyone offer assistance?

Also, my 28.8kbps modem appears broken--I can send AT commands, but when it
connects, most of the data flowing through the line is lost. This does not
occur in 2.1.101 (which I am running now)

Help is much appreciated! :)
